Stories about the life of a small girl who lives in Africa with her African dad and Canadian mum and a large extended family. The country is not named but the author has drawn on experiences from her own Nigerian childhood. Modern and traditional aspects of African life are an integral part of the stories. Atinuke maintains a light tone throughout but there are some thought-provoking episodes, particularly when Anna sells oranges and later comes to understand that she has deprived some poorer children of their income.
