    ‘My favorite meal is a roasted bird and two slices of bread plus a cup of lemon tea’African author Omoruyi Uwuigiaren was born and grew up in Ojo Lagos Nigeria Africa As a young adult he attended school for Mass Communications Ruyi his nickname soon discovered his talent for the arts included drawing cartoons and writing children's books Ruyi currently lives in his hometown where he writes for children in his authentic African style He has published two books to date – THE ADVENTURES OF NIHU and now THE CITY OF HEROES AND OTHER STORIES FROM THE HEART OF AFRICA Not only does Ruyi write well but he also is a very gifted illustrator He divides his book into six stories The City Heroes The Jungle Ants The Country Boy Stranger on the Farm and Baby Thomas and Blaize and the Master of Enchantment Each story is uniue in storyline but each story reflects the atmosphere of NigeriaFrom the title story sample the following ‘The night was a dead as a doornail and Lady Tranuility took her seat in the neighborhood Dag a frustrated cat in the pool of old age had nothing better to do than lie on the rooftop of a bungalow that was begging for renovation The cat gazed at the beautiful earth that spread before him as if it were a balance sheet under the nose of a shrewd accountant Dag was not alone Other cats that had also known misfortune lay around the old cat like a pasture clothed with flocks Dag cleared his throat and said ‘I have no passion for living any How can we exist without offending?’ ‘That is for the next world’ said Fred as he scratched his hinduarter Raising his head and yawning Pork said ‘It is impossible to walk through life without enemies It may be better to live in isolation Bt I have yet to see an isolated man who is happy’ Dag sighed as if the hands of impossibility had challenged his ‘Did I tell you my master has not fed me for two nights?’ he asked his friends ‘No but I have heard that bedtime story before’ said Pork as he sighed and turned away “I will never forget what that old man did to me’ said Dag as he shook hi s head ‘I have never seen you in this mood’ said Pork ‘Tell us what did he do to you?’ ‘Three nights ago I chased a rat in his kitchen The little devil disappeared into a hole in the wall which was near my master’s sop pot I wanted to leave the kitchen but I knew that as soon as I’d gone the rat would come out of the hole and devour the sop So I stayed back to keep vigil over the old man’s meal and possibly snuff the life out of the foolish rat if he ventured out of hiding As I lay silently in the corner hoping I would take care of the unfortunate sol of the opportunity presented itself I heard a sueak and was not disappointed when I raised my head and saw the rat It was heading towards the sop pot on the table Seeing that the rat was too close to the pot I pounced’ EtcRich in atmosphere and beautifully placing animals in human situations Ruyi proves he has a talent in both writing and illustrating books for both children and adults He is a refreshing new voice Short book full of joy

    THE CITY HEROES by Omoruyi Uwuigiaren is a series of short stories introducing the reader to the lives of different characters in Africa from animals to humans Lovely artwork throughout the book adds a nice touch giving the reader a glimpse of what is to follow in that particular story We meet cats as they discuss their problems in life One story introduces the reader to a priest and his wife Then there are the jungle ants and their struggles to survive And so much Each story has a message such as “fighting doesn’t solve anything” and “learn from one another and work hard” to name a couple The stories also gave me a glimpse into the lives of a different culture that of Africa This is a delightful group of short stories to make a person thankful for his or her blessings The author gives the reader a good look at another world that in some ways is much the same as my world yet also different Middle grade readers and even young teens should enjoy reading about the adventures of the cats rats and ants while also learning about the people of another country Africa This would make a nice addition to school libraries public libraries and your own private library

    The City Heroes the first short story in this book depicts the life of cats Author Uwvigiaren had brought the lives of street cats together is this heroic story One menace Flinz killed so many cats and caused heartaches for cats who wanted peace and to get alone with fellow cats and humans How can one cat be so vicious? Uwvigiaren has many themes running through these six stories Courage survival friendship destiny hard work forgiveness death strange coincidences are just a few The title was somewhat misleading to me

    There is the Human World and Then There is the Animal WorldDo not let the book cover fool you This is an adult book I think middle school children might enjoy it as well I had forgotten the magic of cats dogs and rats that speak to one another in a story It's like a whole other world is happening around our human world The animals in THE CITY HEROES by OMORUYI UWUIGIAREN are wonderful as all sorts of adventures happen in their everyday world Each story is poignant in some way whether it's the character traits of the animals or the underlying moral or theme of the story This is the second book I've read by Mr Uwuigiaren Each book won me over due to the amount of detail and and descriptive passages I look forward to hearing from this author again very soon facebookcomomoruyiu Grapes Southeast USA
