    Short Description: What do children really want? Hugs and kisses or toys every now and then? Well, these are very good gifts to give to a child, but they are not enough for the children of Port Winkle. Actually, the children in Port Winkle want their very own government that is free from grown-up interference. The brain behind this idea is a clever nine-year-old called Simi Coker whose interest in reading newspapers makes her aware of happenings in Port Winkle. This is how she comes to know the grown-ups are going to have an election which she thinks shouldn’t be a purely grown-up affair. For Simi, children have rights as citizens and must be allowed to participate in the election or in a purely children’s election for a purely children’s government.

    Find out all about the rough and tumble, the daring exploits as well as what it means when children take charge of their lives through their very own government.

    Short Description: How does one date bring bittersweet memories in one single thought? That was one of the questions in Folarin’s mind as he narrates his spine-chilling encounter with kidnappers. On a bright sunny Saturday morning of 1st May 1999, himself and Titi were joined in Holy Matrimony. 17 years later, they were forcefully separated, on the same date.

Without warning, he was abducted from the comfort of his home. Exposed to the elements of nature with little or no food, and in constant terror of a dangerously armed gang, he had to negotiate his freedom but not before an unexpected twist brought him in a direct, hair-raising confrontation with his abductors.

    Set in the South-South region of Nigeria, Abduction Chronicles is a gripping account of Folarin’s many close shaves with death, with striking details of his journey to and from abyss.

    Short Description: When Alaafin Abiodun Adegolu died, the Oyo Empire was in a a slow decline. The provincial chiefs who helped him defeat the tyrannical Bashorun Gaa had grown in power and the Oyo chiefs were more politicians than warriors. So, when the Oyo Mesi selected a provincial prince, Aole Arogangan to ascend the throne of his fathers, they believed they had an Alaafin they could control.

    But Aole had different ideas and he sought to restore the glory of the empire and the supremacy of the Alaafin as its emperor. In this however, his ambitions clashed with those of Afonja, the powerful provincial chief of war camp, Ilorin. Afonja had been promised the office of Aare Ona Kakanfo of all the Oyo forces by the Oyo chiefs in order to secure his support for Aole’s ascension. He would stop at nothing to take what he believed was his by right.

    Afonja—The Rise is the story of how the clashes of these two men and the intrigue of the others around them transformed what was a slow decline into a race of the empire towards its collapse. In Afonja-The Rise, we tell their stories first as what they were—men and women living their lives, warring, scheming and loving in ways that will be familiar to the reader—beyond their roles as actors in the epic history of the great Oyo Empire.

    Short Description: “…the governor is coming tomorrow, and we have prepared another dance for him. He will get on the news again to announce all things that he had donated to the camp. The foreign aid team will come with their own supplies too. they will take pictures with us–and with all the things that have been donated to the camp. The newspaper will show our pictures smiling like we have been instructed to do by the camp officers when the pictures were taken. But then the store is always empty. The foods, the water, the drugs and even the mosquito nets disappear immediately their pictures have been taken. None of those things have legs! How did they walk away? The answer is simple. They took them!”

    Embers is a drama of metaphor, and perhaps the dialogue captured above best illustrates the dilemma in that metaphor.

    File Size (eBook): 50 KB

    Book Dimension (Paperback): 5.5 x 8.5

    Publisher: Iwedi Ojinmah

    ISBN: 1729148441

    Available at: Online on Amazon Stores and Amazon Kindle Store

    Short Description: Nobody questions the benefits of reading any more. People who read, or are read too, live longer happier lives and grow up to be more attentive and productive, regardless of what they do. From as far back as when our ancestors drew crude drawings in their caves, or passed on stories by the side of their campfires, the need to converse has always been embedded in us. This book is an effort to continue this narrative, be it between parent and child, strangers in a book club or teacher and student in school.

    Come with us as we invite you into a sleepy Igbo village, where animals can speak to each other, and their daily interaction with humans is told in a fast and witty way. The highlight is the big soccer derby between rival villages, its unfolding and subsequent outcome. It is indeed an African fantasy, experienced by animal and child, but through the eyes of an adult.

    Title: This Side of the Dead

    Author: Isaac Attah Ogezi

    Genre: Drama

    Format: Paperback

    Book Dimension: 5.0 x 7.5

    Number of Pages: 181

    Publication Year: 2018

    Publisher: Old Press (PEA & Associates)

    ISBN: 978-9789545346

    Available at: Booksellers Ltd, Abuja, Citi Plaza, Area 11, Garki and No. 34, Ankpa Road, Makurdi, 08035933577

    Short Description: Mr. Ogezi’s new play examines the fears, struggles and triumphs of the downtrodden in a class-restive society. With deft utilization of stage resources and verisimilitude, humanity is depicted with telling imaginative empathy in a ghoulish dramatization that embeds reality in fiction.

    This Side of the Dead mirrors the class tensions inherent in a third-world country and their attendant consequences. It is about the lives of two brothers caught in the vortex of a soulless world. Michael, an expelled final-year law student on asylum at his elder brother’s construction site home, unwittingly manages to attract love from Susan, an American-born daughter of a Nigerian Cabinet Minister. Unfortunately, his ambivalence to this love does not suffice in stopping the huge price which the poor must pay for crashing the party of the rich and the powerful.
