Ladumo Books Presents our Debut Title: Héléna and the Missing Papaya
Ladumo Books makes the world accessible by telling fun and intriguing stories set in places around the world — particularly, places that children have never seen in media, and yet tied to communities living here in the U.S. right now.
Our first book, Héléna and the Missing Papaya, tells the story of a young girl from Douala in Cameroon who goes on a childhood mystery adventure to save the fruit from her papa’s favorite tree.
The book is complete, bilingual in English and French, beautifully illustrated with full-page color art on every page from cover to cover, by artists native to Cameroon! Take a look at the talented young professionals who made this possible:
