This book contains three short stories about a young Nigerian girl called Tola who despite her small size is very tough and determined. Tola lives with her Granmummy who is very strict and bossy, her sister, Moji, who is very clever and her brother, Dapo, who is very fast and good at football. Despite her small size Tola shows that she is actually stronger than she appears when she goes to market with Grandmummy and manages to carry home a basket full of food. Tola’s strength and determination is further shown when she has to bring water from the well when the taps in her flat stop working and when she and Dapo help Mr Abdul, the tailor, to deliver his orders on time.
