Children of the Benin Kingdom
About this deal
My main characters are called Eze – he is very helpful and caring, and Ade – adventurous and always happy. The plot was exciting because there were lots of cliffhangers and it was light-hearted and serious at different times. The thing that most stands out was the three descriptions of the journey through the forest that Mbe and Ada took. Which of the characters (if any) you did not like. Why?Chief Obiro. He was hunting Ada and her friends.
But when Papa Eze himself becomes ill, he knows it's time to reveal to Ada her true heritage - time for her to travel deep into the forest to discover the ancient Edo kingdom of Benin, and to use everything within her power to heal the terrible divisions that are tearing the kingdom apart. The Children of the Benin Kingdom is a book based on the rainforest and the Edo city where a young girl called Ada pronounced a-da goes on a quest to hide from the Edo people and rescue her brother Nosa pronounced no-sa with the help from Mbe pronounced mm-bey, mama Ginika pronounced ji-nee-kah and papa Eze pronounced eht-zeh. I think it is good but not the best book but very exciting and lots of twists. The most sad thing is then a main chat then dead. Was the plot exciting, thought-provoking, serious or light-hearted (or any mixture of these)?Yes! Ada got to explore a lot and do what she wanted to do.

Which of the characters did you find most interesting? Why?Ada. She liked climbing trees and most people her age can’t do it very well. This book is adventurous. It is set in a forest. A man takes the ally inside a root and looksfor a golden tree. A person called Mbe helped find the tree and Now oh the Aunt for the Edo rite. Was the plot exciting, thought-provoking, serious or light-hearted (or any mixture of these)?Exciting.I thoughtthe book was very interesting because a little girl was lost in the rain forest and an old man took her in and looked after her. I absolutely love this book. It was actually placed in the 12thCentury in a part of West Africa. Which of the characters did you find most interesting? Why?Papa Eze. He looked after Ada and was an herbalist.
My favourite character was Ada because she was strong, brave, and courageous and has an incredible family past. My least favourite character was Ujo pronounced oo-jor because he betrayed papa Eze and Ada to the Edo king (the sky king) Ogiso. Was the plot exciting, thought-provoking, serious or light-hearted (or any mixture of these)?Exciting. Many unexpected events happened.I found Ada the most interesting character because she is very resilient and brave. I did not really like Mama Ginga because she tries to stop Ada in the forest.
