Three elders, “Blessing”, “Wisdom” and “Love”, come knocking at the door. They’re tired, dirty and in need of a meal. But the family may only invite one of the visitors into their home. Who will it be?

This fable is told from West Africa to South Africa and is a tale that belongs to all of Africa and its people. Although the setting and characters are quintessentially African – from the rhythms of their speech to the patterns on their clothes – the message is universal. This is a book for every child and family. All families face obstacles and must make choices!
