Though this work is designated as a children's book by most authorities, the jacket blurb, from a reader's report, states 'Womba appears to me to be a wonderful boy's book, yet a book that must appeal at the same time to children and adults of both sexes.'
Each episode in this book is designated as a chapter, hence its description as a novel. In the book's Introduction, the author describes the chapters as 'stories [that] revolve round the life of a black boy named Womba'. Hence, the book could also be thought of as a series of related shorter pieces.
Dedication: To those who encouraged me to write these stories.
