First-time author Bereket Lulseged explaining why she decided to write her book that is educational but also adventurous:
"I wanted to write a children's storybook that is extremely entertaining and historical. I wanted children who are reading Muna and Abebe; to learn about the legendary Abebe Bikila: his achievements, strength and determination. At the same time, I wanted it to be a great story about a little girl, Muna, and her unlikely friendship with the great Abebe and the whole fascinating concept of time travel."
An amazing book for young and African readers. Muna & Abebe is available both in English & Amharic.
