Publisher's Summary

Once a year, Mr. Sola visits this industrious village to enjoy colorful dancing, eat great Nigerian foods, and buy a finely crafted gift for his beloved wife. 

Little Kimi is so excited about the party, she asked her parents if they too could attend. Kemi's father, a proud fruit peddler knows they have nothing fancy enough to sale at the gift buying party, so they decide to give, Mr. Sola, a unique gift not made with hands. 

When the artisan neighbors find out what the happy family has done for Mr. Sola, they make the family the laughing stock of the village. After all, Mr. Sola only wants the best. However, to everyone's surprise, this year, Mr. Sola is not interested in eating, dancing, or buying a finely crafted gift. He's on a quest for a rare perfumed oil that has long disappeared, and he won't stop till he finds it. 

Will Kemi’s father rely on his past skills as an oil maker to help Mr. Sola find his rare fragrance? Or will everyone, including Mr. Sola discover, the best gifts in life are those not made with hands?
