New Shoes for Helen

"It would be good to see more books like this, that show just how similar we humans are, and what a huge influence the lottery of our births has on our lives..."

The Girl Who Married a Ghost


"This is a lovely compilation of stories from Africa and it's comforting that pride, envy...are human traits across all cultural backgounds..."

A brand new edition of this classic book from Ifeoma.


Newly released in 2016.


'From Beads to Drums to Masquerades, from Grandmother to Yams, this photographic alphabet captures the rhythms of day-to-day village life in Africa. Ifeoma Onyefulu's lens reveals not only traditional crafts and customs, but also the African sense of occasion and fun in images that will delight children the world over'.
