Lila and the Secret of Rain

Author: David Conway
Illustrator: Jude Daly
Publisher: Frances Lincoln

There has been no rain in Lila’s Kenyan village for many weeks and “Without water there can be no life”, her mother says. Lila’s grandfather reveals to her the secret of rain and she climbs the mountain to tell the sky the saddest thing she knows. Will the sky listen to her plea?

Beautiful language – ‘the sky was ebony with emotion’ – accompanies delicate illustrations that convey the sparseness of life and landscape.
