This beautiful collection of childhood games succeeds in capturing the innocent or not so innocent times of the past on one colonial plantation in West Africa. Rich in a universal childhood culture of fun and games the themes of subversion that are echoed in the different games or songs that accompany the games beg readers to participate in the experience. The games would remind readers of their childhood, the mischief they engaged in, and the pranks they played on one another and on the adults in their respective communities.
