by Marie A. Fequiere
In the land of Algeria, a little boy named Akuna, who was born with a beard and is feared by everyone, is the key to bringing peace and happiness back to his people’s land.
After seeing Akuna’s great powers and believing in him, King Karl, the leader of Algeria, begs Akuna to go to King David’s kingdom and use his powers in order for King Karl’s daughter, who was transformed into a rock by King David, to be normal again. But is this great journey too much for a five-year-old boy to handle – or even survive?
