Mayowa and the Masquerades


Mayowa is unhappy because he has been told he will be visiting his grandmother in Ilisan, Nigeria. He just wanted to stay home! However when he gets there, Grandma pairs him up with the ever-hungry, fun-loving Denuyi and together they explore the town and all its wonders. The boys chase grasshoppers, dip their feet into a stream, visit piglets, climb a tree...and join in with a masquerade parade!
