"Talata: The Child Bride" is a carefully knit story of a budding young girl whose dream of becoming a doctor is nearly snuffed out by early marriage. This is a story of pain but also a story of hope and has a happy ending. The authors captivate the reader with simple but powerful language, in the imagery that develops in the mind of the reader. The happy ending with the intervention of Fatimatu and the police is very important, as much of a story of this kind, leaves the reader only a tragic end. It's a story of pain, but also hope, because Talata has the opportunity to continue her education. Children and adults will find this book a useful leisure activity, as well as an educational tool to strengthen their ability to express themselves and teach the world about measures to combat child marriage.
