An inspiring story about the time travel adventures of Princess Nia who protects ancient secrets from an evil wizard by playing a game called Tell Me Who I Am.
In a dramatic escape from 14th Century Timbuktu, Nia and her comically-clever companion, Funzi, blast off in a mysterious timeship to keep their nemesis, Komo the wizard, from stealing the precious Imhotep medallion, which Nia has vowed to protect. Upon landing in the 21st century, Nia and Funzi meet Kwame and Manny who promise to help them get home. In an adventurous attempt to return to Timbuktu to rescue her parents, Nia, Funzi and their new friends land in ancient Egypt where they learn from Imhotep a new game called Tell Me Who I Am, which they use to outsmart the evil Komo and his Emissaries of Stone who are in constant pursuit.
It's a fascinating story with integrated lessons about African and African American history, science, and positive values. We are introduced to Imhotep, Mae C. Jemison, Benjamin Banneker, the Dogon people of western Mali, astronomy, Timbuktu and ancient Egypt.
