Tolu lives in a flat in Lagos with her sister, Bola, who is very clever; her brother, Femi, who is very fast; and Grandmummy, who is ver...y bossy. Tolu proves to be stronger than she seems when she goes to market with Grandmummy and manages to carry home a basket full of yams and vegetables, chilli peppers and fish. When the taps in the flat don't work, it's Tolu who brings water from the well, and it's Tolu who saves the day when Mr Abdul, the tailor, needs his goods to be delivered quickly. Too-Small Tolu is a wonderful new character in the world of children's books by multi-award-winning children's writer and storyteller Atinuke.
