Deep in the Sahara

R 59.00

Lalla lives in the Muslim country of Mauritania, and more than anything, she wants to wear a malafa, the colourful cloth Mauritanian women, like her mama and big sister, wear to cover their heads and clothes in public.

But it is not until Lalla realises that a malafa is not just worn to show a woman's beauty and mystery or to honour tradition—a malafa for faith—that Lalla's mother agrees to slip a long cloth as blue as the ink in the Koran over Lalla's head, under her arm, and round and round her body.

Then together, they pray.
