Too Small Tola

Author: Atinuke
Illustrator: Onyinye Iwu
Publisher: Walker

Three stories of community life in the megacity of Lagos, Nigeria where Tola lives with her grandmother, her scholarly sister Moji and her football mad brother Dapo. Tola may be small but she uses her wits and good humour to aid those around her, whether it’s helping Grandmummy bring back a load from market, pumping water when the electricity goes off or travelling the district measuring the local tailor’s customers after he has an accident, so he can still produce splendid outfits for the dual celebrations of Easter and Eid.
