Too Small Tola and the Three Fine Girls

By Atinuke
Illustrated by Onyinye Iwu

Tola may be small, but she's very determined!

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 writer and storyteller Atinuke.

  • The second book in a new series by Atinuke, set in Lagos, Nigeria, with all this award-winning author's trademark charm, wit and irresistible storytelling.
  • Three new stories about Too Small Tola and her family by the author of the hugely popular Anna Hibiscus and No. 1 Car Spotter series.
  • Black and white art throughout by Onyinye Iwu, a fabulous new talent in children's book illustration.
