This book is dedicated to my two children Ricky and Tare, now 30 and 26, who when they were little and growing up in America, needed a story about Grandpa, my dad, who still lived in Nigeria and whom they didn't see very often. They enjoyed hearing about Nigeria and how Grandpa grew up in the town of Egbe, as the son of the King of Egbe. The stories became this book, the first in a series of seven about Tunde, their grandpa, and his escapades as a little boy, showing that children are basically the same around the world.

I am looking at the cover of my copy of 'Tunde The Little Nigerian Prince, and thinking it is fun to know another author who likes to do the illustrations as well as the written copy.  ...a few have said, "Is that amateur art work?"  To which I reply, "The word amateur comes from the Latin word Amo which means love.  An amateur is one who loves what he or she is doing."
