About the Author

Atinuke was born in Nigeria and spent her childhood in both Africa and the UK. She is the author of the bestselling Anna Hibiscus and No. 1 Car Spotter series, as well as Africa, Amazing Africa, B Is for Baby, Catch that Chicken and Hugo, among others. Atinuke started her career as an oral storyteller of tales from the African continent; now she writes about contemporary life in Nigeria.
Onyinye Iwu is Nigerian. She was born in Italy, where she spent most of her childhood, then moved to the UK when she was a teenager. A teacher by day and an illustrator by night, Onyinye enjoys reading books, especially ones that make her laugh.


A great children’s book set in Nigeria, Lagos with three short stories connected to one another. A unique sense of realism and childhood joy and adventure mixed in this book. Loved the beautiful illustrations.
*NetGalley Reviewer*

Having read and enjoyed the first book, I knew I had to read the second. I was not disappointed as yet again the charming character of Tola shone through in the three short, linked stories. I love the dynamic between the family members and the black and white illustrations. I'm looking forward to sharing this with the children at school.
*NetGalley Reviewer*

Readers and listeners will be charmed by these tales, which as always, celebrate family, community and love, as well as trying to find answers to sometimes tricky concerns. Onyinye Iwu’s illustrations are full of warmth and gentle humour adding to the delights of Atinuke’s text.
