Atinuke has been a travelling story-teller and has a distinctive and
engaging voice. Anna Hibiscus is an enchanting series
of stories about the everyday life of a little girl living in a modern-day
African city, beautifully illustrated by Lauren Tobia. Anna's growing
popularity on both sides of the Atlantic has meant that she also features
in her own picture books to make her accessible to a younger audience
(also illustrated by Lauren Tobia).
In 2012 Anna Hibiscus was included in Time Out New York's Top 50 Best Books for Kids; "a book that deserves to become a classic". It was also a 2011 Boston Globe Honor Book for Excellence in Children's Literature. Atinuke's new series of chapter books is centred on an African village boy, No.1 Car Spotter. Atinuke lives with her husband and two sons in Pembrokeshire.
