What is Princess Raya BY FATIMA KOISE about?
“Princess Raya” the long-haired girl re-tells the story of Rapunzel the fairy by Friedrich Schulz published since in the 1790’s, from an African perspective.

That’s it for today, please leave a comment below, I would love to know what you think of this book.
As this is a children’s book, permit me to plug my upcoming children’s book that I’m optimistic you would love. It’s called Useless Warrior Princess. It’s a fully illustrated children’s book suitable for children aged 2/3 and above. My friend said even her teenager loved the illustrations. I’m especially proud of this book as I did the illustrations myself. You can order your copy on Amazon now
