Too Small Tola and Three Fine Girls by Atinuke
Three charming stories about a young girl who lives in a flat in Lagos with her sister, Moji, who is very clever; her brother, Dapo, who is very fast; and Grandmummy, who is very bossy. Too Small Tola is just the right size to fit under the bed and rescue Grandmummy's most prized possession when it goes missing. Her abilities in maths prove to be very helpful when Grandmummy becomes ill.
In the title story, though Grandmummy can't afford to buy Tola new clothes, Tola turns out to be just as fine as the three fine girls she so greatly admires. A book full of heart and humour by multi-award-winning author and storyteller Atinuke, with artwork by Onyinye Iwu, a fabulous new talent in children's illustration.
Too Small Tola is a wonderful new character in the world of children's books by multi-award-winning children's writer and storyteller Atinuke ( of Anna Hibiscus fame)
Why It's on The Cornrow?
It wouldn’t be The Cornrow without a book edit. Our co-founder Kemi is a voracious reader and her dream was to open her own book store, well here it is!! As the mother of two young children, she makes sure she stays informed on the diverse books that should be on every child's bookshelf.
