2021 Read for Empathy collection -

Tola may be small, but she's very determined. Three delightful stories about a young girl who, though small, is very determined. Tola 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.

Tola 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 Tola who brings water from the well, and it's Tola who saves the day when Mr Abdul, the tailor, needs his goods to be delivered quickly.
