Femi the Fox, the children's book about Africa, for everyone

Former Team GB Olympic sprinter Jeanette Kwakye was searching for a children's book for her son, but couldn't find one that featured characters from Africa.

So she she decided to write her own, creating Femi the Fox, to teach young readers all about West African culture.
