Just as Tola is small but mighty, these short stories are bursting with heart. Narrator Mutiyat Ade-Salu's bright tone conveys the joy and strength of Tola as she gets into mischief while home alone with her siblings, goes to work when her grandmother gets malaria, and learns how she can be fine like the wealthier girls she sees. Ade-Salu uses an American accent for the narrative and Nigerian accents for the dialogue to reflect the story's setting, the megacity of Lagos. Though Tola's life has its troubles, she perseveres with help from her community and family. Ade-Salu's melodious voice keeps the stories fun and well aimed at younger elementary kids even when their topics become serious. This second Tola collection is an excellent family listening experience. S.T.C. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2022]
