Téa and her big sister Issa live in a hostile desert. Not only is it hard to find water, but the Racas, a ruthless group of bandits, are also roaming the desert in search of this precious liquid. Several years ago, the Racas kidnapped the girls' mother because she has a special power: the ability to sense water. Téa, determined to find her mother, embarks on an adventure full of dangerous twists and turns. This graphic novel is 20 pages long, with only 100 headwords and lots of cognates. Though the language is fairly simple, the story is remarkably complex and engaging, and supported by beautiful illustrations. An ideal book for Novice learners.
