We Too Were Children, Mr. Barrie: CHINUA ACHEBE: CHIKE AND THE RIVERThe more Chike saw the ferry-boats the more he wanted to make the trip to Asaba. But where would he get the money? He did not know. Still, he hoped. With the help of his friend S. Along the way, he is exposed to a range of new experiences that are both thrilling and terrifying, from eating his first skewer of suya under the shade of a mango tree, to visiting the village magician who promises to double the money in his pocket. Once he finally makes it across the river, Chike realizes that life on the other side is far different from his expectations, and he must find the courage within him to make it home.

Still, he hoped. Chaotic Good. More Recommendations More Books. I have to read more of Achebe's stuff.
But behind the simple boyhood facade lies a deeper story. Full access is for members only. He is the author of five nove. It's moral biok is also of that stature.
In classic Achebe style, everyone had also described it as a great place which didn't help Chike at all. Laura Sebastian. Everyone at his school had done it and he was feeling left out, proverbs and folktales are peppered throughout the simple but well told story of an boy trying to make his way across the river and ultimately learning sometimes the grass isn't quite as green on the other side as one thought!
