Reprint. Originally published: without accompanying DVD. 1994. Read by Adjoa Andoh.

In this book and DVD edition of a picture book classic, a delightful surprise colourfully unfolds when a little girl called Handa puts seven delicious fruits in a basket to take to her friend. A picture book and DVD edition of a bestselling modern classic, this is the story of Handa, who's part of the Luo tribe in south-west Kenya.

Handa decides to take seven pieces of delicious fruit to her friend, Akeyo, who lives in the neighbouring village.

But as Akeyo wonders, I wonder what fruit Akeyo will like best?, a series of sneaky animals steal something from Handa's basket, which she's carrying on her head...

When Handa reaches Akeyo, will she have anything left to offer her friend?

Richly-illustrated, brimming with luscious fruit and cheeky wild animals, this mouth-watering story is brought to life in a gentle animation by the acclaimed King Rollo Films - accompanied by specially composed music and narrated by Adjoa Andoh, from Doctor Who and Casualty.
