Considering that my first book for Walker Books was published in 2007 and I have been a professional storyteller for many more years than that, this website has been a long a time coming! And it probably won't ALL be here for a while longer: my husband, (who is also my IT department) has taken on the building of my site (as well as being the rock and the safe place of our whole family) and goodness knows how he will find time... but he will!
I am Atinuke. I am author of all the bright and beautiful children’s books shown here. I am also a traditional oral Nigerian storyteller.
All my books are set in Africa. And all the stories I tell as an oral storyteller originate in Africa too. There my roots go deep into the rich soil.
