Her audience is her best friend Zainab, to whom she extends an invite to join her, when next she returns. Written in a bouncing rhyming style, children will learn while having fun as they join Adanah on her school holiday adventure The book is geared towards a reading age of 4-7 and the characters are positive models for the African culture, food and way of life.
