  1. I enjoyed Figgy in the World by Tamsin Janu. Figgy’s grandmother is ill and needs medicine. Figgy and her family live in Ghana so Figgy decides to walk with her goat to America. Figgy knows nothing of America and she doesn’t even know the proper name, she calls it the United stilts of America. On her way she meets a boy who becomes like a brother to her.
    I definitely think that the book “Figgy in the World” should be on
