Ato The Giant Slayer And The Vicious Park

Ato is a lonely and sorrowful little boy trying to come to terms with the recent death of his father. His world brightens up when a weird clownish angel called Sunshine becomes his friend and gives him the most amazing gift he could've ever asked for.

However, just when he is beginning to feel happy for the first in months, he is shocked to learn he has been chosen to be a member of an age-old secret organisation called The League of Giant Slayers. But in order to assume this great responsibility, Ato must overcome his fears and embrace his destiny. Could he be the little Giant Slayer prophesied about centuries ago, who would mark a new era in the life of the league?

I pride myself in being one of the first people to have read this book since it came out less than a month ago. The story is pretty much captivating from the very first to the last page. The combination of childish humour, adventure and suspense as well as the several unexpected twists will keep you glued to the book to the very end. I am 28 years old and don't normally go for children's books. I got this one out of curiosity and perhaps my personal Barack Obama fever (the story is about a black boy). It has served me well on my short train rides to and from work. I am reading it again and just can't wait fot the sequel.

Very cool and complex in prediction .
I loved every bit of this book. I try to approach books with an open mind but often find most stories similar to others and therefore unexciting, no matter how well written they are. I, however, found this piece of work refreshing, lighthearted and funny, and the author managed to stick to the plot and throw in a few twists here and there. My kids also love this book. Last Halloween, my daughter wanted to dress up as Sunshine but it was too late to put the ensemble together, and wouldn't make any substitutions. I recommend this author.

Lovely concept. The use of the hero's name to connect to his destiny was interesting, and I believe the author struck a good balance between Ato's Ghanaian heritage and the rural-ish western society he lives in. The use of a whacky scruffy angel and a living telephone booth present endless opportunities I am looking forward to seeing the author explore in the future. The author uses humor well and my son loves out loud at some of Mr. Ringo's antics.
