Pedru and the Big Boom
Pedru is curious about life beyond his village. Even though he loves his father’s cashew trees and mother’s curries, his loyal friends, and football fields, he desperately wants to be an ‘explorer’.
But when his grand plan to escape turns topsy-turvy, he believes that he has set loose a chain of events which will put his entire village in danger! Who are these mysterious new people? Why are they blasting a big hole in the hills near their village? What can he do to make things right?
This story is an emotional rollercoaster that takes you through the struggle of one boy and his village to save their beloved land from a powerful opponent.
