Description
(1995 Newbery Honor Book) Following A Girl Named Disaster and The House of the Scorpion, which both won Newbery Honors as well, Nancy Farmer sets this tale for readers 12 and up in the strange African landscape of 2194. Three adventurous children—13-year-old Tendai, his younger sister Rita, and their little brother Kuda—escape their parents' heavily guarded mansion in Zimbabwe to explore, and soon learn how dangerous the world outside really is. Enslaved in a plastic mine by the terrifying She Elephant, then caught at the top of the massive skyscraper Mile High MacIlwaine, they are pursued by the Ear, the Eye, and the Arm, mutant detectives hired by the children's parents, who always seem to arrive too late.

"Even readers who don't like [sci-fi] will be drawn to a hero who has a sense of humor about his serious mission.... Throughout the story, it's the thrilling adventure that will grab readers, who will also like the comic, tender characterizations, not only of the brave, defiant trio and the absurd detectives, but also of nearly every one the kids meet, from street gangsters and spiritual healers to the English tribespeople with their weird customs."—Booklist
