Young readers will gasp and giggle as the friends figure out the mystery and—along the way—learn about their town, families, and the strength of their own bravery.
In Ondo, Nigeria, children grow up hearing tales of the Deruba Man—a mysterious presence who makes people vanish when go out at night. These types stories are passed down from wise parents and grandparents. Elders tell tales of close calls. But Kemi, Femi, and Tinu, aren’t scared. They make a plan to venture out at night and find the Deruba Man, once and for all. “Surely he could not make all three of us disappear all at once!” says Kemi. Will they find the Deruba Man?
