Catch That Goat! A Market Day in Nigeria by Polly AlakijaAyoka has been left in charge of the family goat - but within minutes it has vanished. As Ayoka searches the streets of the town, she starts to realise just how much trouble the runaway is creating among the market stalls. Will Ayoka finally catch up with her mischievous goat? Children will enjoy counting backward from ten to one as they help Ayoka find the goat in this hilarious hide-and-seek caper. This new edition includes informative endnotes on Nigeria and the Yoruba language.
'On opening this book there is immediately a wonderful impression of colour, pattern and movement created in the first few pages and one already feels transported to Africa - a foreign land... The book is a joy to read and participate in. It is full of interest and entertainment for young children'
