The Great and Mighty Wall
Inspired by a true story about a Yoruba Queen named Bilikisu Sungbo, The Great and Mighty Wall is a unique and interesting tale of Bilikisu Sungbo and the construction of the earthen wall in Eredo, of South Western Nigeria.
Panyin Ewusi-Aikins' superb illustrations, together with Mark Simpson's masterful storytelling, will enthral children and adults alike, as they learn about one of Africa's hidden treasures. Mark and Panyin have utilised their creative license to fill in the missing information, in order to link the facts together, to make this historical achievement more enjoyable to read and understand for all people of all ages.
