Street Level was selected as 2012 Honor Book for Older Readers by the Children’s Africana Book Award program, affiliated with the African Studies Association.

The introduction to this extraordinarily beautifully illustrated book gives a fascinating overview of the history and architectural heritage of Dar es Salaam, and an insight into the efforts of those seeking to preserve it. The book captures ‘fragments of the atmosphere, the sun bleached charm and the dynamic energy’ of Dar es Salaam.
