I had to keep reminding myself King Peggy is a true story. It's more entertaining than a lot of fiction I've read lately. I found myself the ultimate spectator, cheering King Peggy and her people on as they root out the corruption and lies of the elders and set about making life better for the village. It made me smile and scowl and practically dance with glee at times and mostly made me wish we had a leader who cared as much about our people as King Peggy cares about hers. I would love to hear our head of state threaten to " Squeeze your balls til your eyes pop out of your heads ". Long live the king, may she never have to go for a cure in the village!

Would you listen to King Peggy again? Why?
Yes, I will listen to this story again because it is full of cultural aspects of Ghana, ie, pouring drinks for their dead ancestors, their rituals, and how they value family even in the light of disappointments.
What was one of the most memorable moments of King Peggy?
When the King had to accept that her ideals about her elders were wrong.
Which scene was your favorite?
I enjoyed the entire story... but when the King had to explain to the counsel of kings how she had buried the wrong king.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
The tag line would include a line indicating that against all odd the Lady King made majaor improvements to her village within a short period of time.
