I am extremely thrilled to announce the second installment in the “Memories of a Gambian Child Series.” It is titled “The Move: Slouching towards Bakau.”
In this sequel to the Mischievous Mosquitoes of Banjul series, Momodou is sent away to live with his uncle in the nearby town of Bakau. Unbeknownst to Momodou, the Banjul Mosquito Forces have learned that Momodou disclosed their biting playbook to the entire city of Banjul, and now he must pay! Will the Force get their revenge on Momodou or will Momodou outsmart them in Bakau?
In addition, there will be a new mosquito character named Cheppeh (young lady) introduced in this new installment of the book series. She is a studious young lady from Banjul Central who made a name for herself in Banjul.

I want to express my gratitude to FyeN Publishing, Saul Njie, my editor, and Saffie Jagne, my co-author and niece. This is a passion project for me, and I feel fortunate to have you as part of my team. You are truly appreciated.
Lastly, to everyone who has been a source of support either by buying the first book, helping to promote it, offering words of encouragement, or in whatever form, I would like to say a big thank you to you too. The valuable support has been one of the many incentives to carry on, and for that, I am forever grateful.
