|Six adventure short stories|
This collection includes six adventure stories for middle school kids: The City Heroes, The Jungle Ants, The Country Boy, Stranger on the Farm, Baby Thomas and Blaize and the Master of Enchantment.
I recently asked Omoruyi about The City Heroes.
Q: Tell us about your new book.
Omoruyi: "The City Heroes is a perfect introduction for young readers to learn about the African experience. The stories within the collection contain messages and themes about forgiveness, charity, redemption and loyalty all from a decidedly African perspective.
Q: What motivated you to write it?
Omoruyi: "I want people to learn about a new culture in the heart of Africa."
Q: Now you write stories for young people. What books or authors inspired you as a kid?
Omoruyi: "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" by Mark Twain, "David Copperfield" and "Oliver Twist" by Charles Dickens, and "Pinocchio" by Carlo Collodi.
Hope you enjoy The City Heroes and Omoruyi's first book, The Adventures of Nihu. Enjoy!
