But when she is chosen to sing for her school in front of the president, her throat runs dry and her bones turn to stone. Can Double and Trouble save her?

Quotes & Awards

  • “A wonderful collection of colorful, warm, and lively stories to be read over and over.”

    Primary Times

  • “Anna Hibiscus is a young girl who lives in West Africa. Although her life and her customs differ from those of children in other countries, she shares the same childhood curiosity and emotions…Anna has a playful and silly side, so her stories make for fun listening. Mutiyat Ade-salu narrates Atinuke’s second title in the series with a sweet voice, using African accents for speaking roles and painting a clear picture of Anna’s adventures. A great choice for classroom or home listening.”

    School Library Journal (starred audio review)

  • “When a talented storywriter and a compelling storyteller get together, the result is an irresistible audio experience…Mutiyat Ade-Salu's soft-spoken voice and confiding tone guide the listener into the thick of Anna’s adventures. Her leisurely pace and hints of pregnant pauses heighten the drama. She also voices a calm and wise grandmother and is spot-on as Anna’s younger twin brothers, Double and Trouble. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award.”
