Clever Clogs Books says it will host Nigerian children’s book authors, illustrators and story tellers to its first ever book festival.


The book festival, titled the Akada Book Festival, will hold on April 27.

The festival will be hosted on the British Council premises in Ikoyi, Lagos.

Commenting on the event, organisers said: “Akada Children’s Book Festival (ACBF) is targeted at children, parents, teachers; children’s book authors and illustrators.


“The aim of the ACBF is to spark and sustain a healthy literary lifestyle from childhood and encourage literary creativity in Nigeria.”

“The festival will be of great significance to the children, their guardians, teachers and caregivers, thus, acting as a stepping stone towards an intellectually sound society.”

‘Why Do You Wash Your Hands?’, a book by Olubunmi Aboderin Talabi, would be launched and read at the event.


The name ‘Akada’ is the Yoruba translation for a lover of literacy and books.

Clever Clogs Books is responsible for the children’s picture books ‘Diary of a Toddler’, Kobold the Antelope; Tobi Visits the Conservatory and the soon-to-be-launched ‘Why You Do You Wash Your Hands?’.
