Ekinadose wants his Uncle Osaere to get married — then he can go to a wedding. One day, he sees people welcomed into his grandfather's house with special kola nuts. After some speeches, the visitors take away a list and when they come back, they are carrying palm wine, alligator pepper, yams and envelopes of money. They've come to collect their bride - and Ekinadose will be not just going to one wedding ceremony, but two!

The stunning sights and sounds of a Nigerian wedding are vividly brought to life in Ifeoma Onyefulu's new picture book. The different traditions and customs of this African wedding are explored and explained through the eyes of one young spectator. We see the preparations made by the whole community in anticipation of the traditional West African ceremony and second religious ceremony.
