Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Tola lives in an apartment in Lagos, Nigeria, with her sister, Moji, who is very clever; her brother, Dapo, who is very fast; and Grandmommy, who is very bossy.  Though small, Tola proves to be stronger than she seems when she goes to the market with Grandmommy and manages to carry home a basket full of yams and vegetables, chili peppers and fish, football glue and diapers.  When the faucets in the apartment don't work, it's Tola who brings water from the pump, and it's Tola who saves the day when Mr. Abdul, the tailor, needs help taking his customers' measurements following an accident.-- Dust jacket.
