Daba's Travels from Ouadda to Bangui

summary ¹ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ¹ Makombo Bamboté Daba's Travels from Ouadda to Bangui review ↠ 100 Daba was born in Ouadda in what is now the Central African Republic His mother often told him about the terrible dry season that year when elephants buffaloes and antelopes stampeded through the countryside in a frenzied search for water Even panthers stalked the bush around the village often carrying innocent sheep Safe near his paren. Like apparently most of the people who read this book I read it for my world books challenge and wasn t particularly impressed It seems to be aimed at middle grade readers ages 9 12 and recounts the childhood experiences of a boy named Daba as he leaves his village in the Central African Republic to attend school in a larger town and spends his vacations traveling around the country with friends and relativesAs you would expect this is a uick and easy read that even includes some illustrations It s a pretty gentle story including adventures such as attending a boarding school and tagging along for a crocodile hunt However it is disjointed prematurely ending events that could have been exciting if fully developed like the crocodile hunt which gets less page time than a neighbor telling the boys a story and including episodes than fit comfortably within its brief page count It does little to immerse the reader in Daba s feelings or experiences in the second half of the book he seems to fade into his group of friends who are indistinguishable in personality and experiences except for the French pen pal who somehow is able to fly to a Central African Republic town alone and spend the summer wandering from village to isolated village with the local boys Daba grows older the book appears to cover a couple of years but he doesn t really have struggles to overcome or seem to change or learn about life At times knowing the story to be based in some way on the author s childhood Daba s portrayal even comes across as self aggrandizing a star pupil always cool and confident beats adults at games liked by everyone except for one classmate who s condemned by other children and adults alike Meanwhile for adult readers the language is perhaps too simple and some of the events are eyebrow raising or could use explanation the pen pal trip Daba s being awarded a scholarship to study abroad without any apparent effort from him or consent from his parents etcAt any rate this isn t too bad if you re doing a world books challenge Daba travels around his country giving the reader a sense of the landscape and the culture in the places he visits and uick reads are always valued for big challenges but those searching for diverse books to give to the children in their lives would be better served looking elsewhere

It s the story of a school boy named Daba who goes to a boarding school in a different part of the Central African Republic The most interesting parts of the book are when Daba and his friends encounter dangerous creatures on their long walks to different towns A young boy from France wins a trip to CAR to meet his pen pal I found it a big unlikely that he would have arrived solo without any parents It s a short read but uite slow paced
