Off to Market This attractive picture book conjures up all the excitement and anxiety of a trip to market in a bus packed so full of people and their produce that it breaks down half way up a hill. Little Keb, squashed in the back with a goat and two sheep volunteers to get off - but can only do so if all the other passengers step down first - ensuring that when he gives the now empty vehicle a push, it moves off again. Everyone is delighted by this outcome, crediting the small boy with a super strength that deserves a reward. The African setting combines traditional and modern elements, and the text - in rhyming quatrains - works well with the pictures to create a light-hearted, amusing tale.
