Papa is big and strong, knows lots of things and can even do magic tricks. But one thing is funny: he seems to be afraid of foreigners. When he and his little daughter meet somebody who looks foreign he squeezes her hand so hard that it almost hurts – and the darker the stranger, the stronger the squeeze.
The little daughter herself is not afraid at all. But perhaps she can help her Papa? Her friend Banja's birthday party might be a good occasion. Papa could do magic tricks for Banja and all the relatives who are coming for her birthday. Banja comes from Tanzania but we don't have to tell Papa that, do we?
A story about the wisdom of children. And of the hope that even grown-ups may be able to learn a thing or two.
