Jessame doesn't mind being called Jessy, or Messy Jessy, or Baddy Addy. Her full name is Jessame Aduke Olusanya. Sometimes she is messy and sometimes she is bad, but mostly she's just Jessame - a lively, imaginative, loving little girl to whom exciting things happen. Hear all about her adventures with magical Grandpa Williams, Uncle Sharp who goes to sea and brings her back unusual presents from faraway places, and fun-loving Aunt Gbee who comes to stay from Africa.
Julia Jarman's stories paint an enchanting and gentle picture of a little West African girl "as pretty as a paw paw flower" learning about life with her friends, family, and neighbours in inner-city London.
