Muu-So: The Story of Creation

Coumba Touré’s creation story, Muu-So, is one of great freedom—freedom to be creative, freedom to experiment, and freedom to think. But it is also a story of love and responsibility. It’s a children’s story, but with its poetic writing it appeals to all. Ndeye Rokhaya Gueye’s illustrations make it come alive in vivid and compelling ways.
