Sophie lives in Gorom-Gorom, with her carnivorous-plant obsessed dad. Despite living there for two years and speaking the local language, Sophie finds it difficult to make friends. So when she meets Gidaado, a young griot (story-teller), she agrees to join him and his albino camel, Chobbal, on a journey to his village. It is not until they have set off, that Sophie begins to realise just how dangerous the desert is - it's full of djinnis that creep up behind you, and jump on your head and make you go mad. Not to mention the infamous Moussa ag Litni, a ruthless bandit who steals camels...

Professional reviews

"'Pure adventure story... an exceptional short novel.' THE TIMES EDUCATIONAL SUPPLEMENT 'I really enjoyed it. I found it hard to put down.' MARIELLA FROSTRUP, OPEN BOOK '...Stephen Davies has a real talent for inspiring young children.' LOVEREADING4KIDS.CO.UK 'This book is absolutely delightful. Sophie is a great heroine - clever, and kind and brave; and the story, despite containing a real, page-turning adventure, is as gentle and charming as the albino camel who grins at you comfortably from the front cover.'
