                                Our flash back Friday Book Review today is Eddie Iroh’s “WITHOUT A SILVER SPOON”. The one book that shaped a lot of people’s childhoods and outlook towards African writers and prose. Definitely one of my favorite reads, it was one of the first African books i read and loved! It opened up our minds to accepting the morals African writers at the time strove to weave into their story. i. e. it was a means of entertaining and teaching at the same time. Winner of the International Board on Books for Young People, Certificate of Honour,  Eddie Iroh weaves the story of a young boy Ure who comes from a poor but honest family and works as a houseboy for one of his teachers to pay his own school fees. Towards the end of his primary school days he is accused of stealing money. He is saved by the well-placed total trust of his parents and his teacher. The story basically builds around the lesson that honesty is truly the best policy.
