Now a Netflix film starring and directed by Chiwetel Ejiofor, this is a gripping memoir of survival and perseverance about the heroic young inventor who brought electricity to his Malawian village. When a terrible drought struck William Kamkwamba's tiny village in Malawi, his family lost all of the season's crops, leaving them with nothing to eat and nothing to sell. William began to explore science books in his village library, looking for a solution. There, he came up with the idea that would change his family's life forever: he could build a windmill. Made out of scrap metal and old bicycle parts, William's windmill brought electricity to his home and helped his family pump the water they needed to farm the land. Retold for a younger audience, this exciting memoir shows how, even in a desperate situation, one boy's brilliant idea can light up the world. Complete with photographs, illustrations, and an epilogue that will bring readers up to date on William's story, this is the perfect edition to read and share with the whole family.… (més)

A captivating story about the main character William. He is from the Masitala Village outside of Kasungu, Malawi. His family lives on a farm where people make their living growing maize, and tobacco. William is a bright, and adventurous boy that is determined to build a windmill for his family to make energy to power lights and a water pump to irrigate the family farm. It's a wonderful story that deals with a persons willingness to overcome any odds to get what they desire.
