This fascinating biography follows Mansa Musa from his lowly boyhood in 14th-century West Africa to his adolescence as a slave in a foreign desert to his ultimate ascendance as king of Mali. Khephra Burns writes marvelously, and the Dillons' illustrations are out-and-out transcendant. It's a treasure for readers ages 8-12.
