*** Kid Moses by Mark Thornton


In an even tone, Kid Moses tells the story of Moses, a young child who lives in Tanzania, orphaned and homeless. He gets beaten up, gets a job, spends some time in a cushy orphanage, escapes with his best friend, and generally makes his own way through life.

It’s sad. And we know, hope, pray, that he will make it. Quite a feat of writing from a child’s point of view.
