"A Nigerian marketplace is the backdrop for this lively chase after a mischievous goat with a penchant for pilfering...The book works well on many levels, such as for storytime, counting, and cultural exploration" -- School Library Journal Chase after a mischievous goat Ayoka has been left in charge of the family goat -- but within minutes the goat has vanished. This Nigerian market tale uses humour to impart a message about responsibility, and includes endnotes about Yoruba costume and language, Nigeria facts, and market life.
Polly Alakija lives in Ibadan, Nigeria, with her husband, four children, three dogs, three goats, a giant tortoise and thirteen horses. She completed an art foundation course at Oxford Polytechnic before training as a Montessori teacher. She then taught art to primary school children and art workshops in London, England before moving to Nigeria in 1990. She now combines her family life with freelance work as a painter, illustrator, and interior designer.
