 A collection of autobiographical excerpts of a young Manyonyi growing up in Kenya.

The short stories mark milestones as Manyonyi begins his life’s journey traversing early childhood to adolescence with memories of experiences, including his first day at school in the village and its environment, to moving into the city. Stories of Life at home with family, also feature highly.

The setting is in a newly independent developing country and is evidenced by a short insight into some of the social policies of the day - Free Milk!

As Manyonyi goes through bullying at school, sibling rivalry, friendships/relationships and mixing with the extended family, one begins to see a boy becoming aware of self.

The comparison with ‘now’ is represented in the latter part of the book as one is brought face to face with present reality.

Has the world changed that much from then? Or is it just a different setting?

Or should we just leave children to be just that - children!
