World Book Day 2017: Rukhsana Khan

We asked our authors to write about a well-loved book, which they think more people should read.
Rukhsana Khan is the author of many award-winning picture books and novels for children. Her book Wanting Mor, a teen novel set in Afghanistan is published in India by Duckbill.
The most intriguing book I read recently was a biography of an African prince who was born exactly two hundred years before me.
His name was Abdur Rahman Ibrahima and he was captured during a battle, sold to Spanish enslavers and then spent forty years enslaved by a far‎mer in Natchez, Mississippi.
The biography is called Prince Among Slaves by Terry Alford.
