The Matatu

Recommended Price 
October 2017
About the book: 

Today is Kioko’s fifth birthday and his grandfather is taking him on his first-ever ride on a matatu, the name given to Kenya’s colourful public buses. As they journey to Machakos, Kioko’s grandfather tells him the tale of a dog, a goat and a sheep, and why dogs always chase after matatus. Through the story, we learn that life is more than a destination and a matatu is more than a vehicle. Both are journeys filled with bumps, dust and unexpected twists and turns. The secret is to sit back and enjoy the ride.
