A collection of three fun and inclusive stories for readers aged 5+

Younger readers will be transported to bustling Lagos, Nigeria in the latest book in this lovely series

We love books that take us around the world and Atinuke's Too Small Tola series is the perfect example. The books star Tola, a young girl who lives with her brother, sister and grandmother. Tola may be small, but she is determined, not to mention extremely likable. This volume is made up of three short stories, all connected but each exploring a different aspect of Tola’s everyday life in Lagos.


Lockdown is over and Too Small Tola has returned to the crowded family flat in Lagos, Nigeria. Even though she is back home and safe, there are still plenty of problems for Tola to solve - including her own. She may be small, but she is also thoughtful and kind and clever – and there really is no problem too big for Too Small Tola.

Atinuke was born in Nigeria and spent her childhood in both Africa and the UK. She is the author of the bestselling Anna Hibiscus and No. 1 Car Spotter series, as well as Africa, Amazing Africa, B Is for Baby, Catch that Chicken and Hugo, among others. Atinuke started her career as an oral storyteller of tales from the African continent; now she writes about contemporary life in Nigeria.
