DAY 4 OF AMADI'S SNOWMAN GLOBAL BLOG TOUR

Today, we visit the very interesting blog of Sandhya Nankani, Literary Safari. Did you know, by the way, that "safari" is a Swahili word that means "trip?"

TUESDAY QUIZZ

Each week, we'll ask three questions about a detail in the book, or something that was mentioned in the tour during the previous days. 

1. What is Amadi stalking, in the first page of the book?
2. What are the languages spoken in the area where Amadi and the children of Nsukka live?
3. When Amadi's mother first talks to him, she tells him not to "run around like ..." ? Like what?

Send your answers to katianovet@gmail.com. We'll pick the correct ones, and randomly select a lucky winner at the end of the tour.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
