Review:
While helping his father take the camel herd to market, young Ali becomes separated from him during a sandstorm. In an exciting, tense story, Ali literally has to make life-and-death decisions. In a fine melding of text and pictures, the illustrator expands the story through his excellent portraiture. A certain "read it again" winner.
