As Sasifi walks along to the market
with her mother, a brightly painted truck passes them on the road.
The passengers hit the side of the truck, tap-tap! To let the
driver know where to stop.
Sasifi wants to ride to market in a tap-tap, but Mama says they
don’t have the money. “Perhaps you are not old enough
to help me on market day,” she tells Sasifi. Determined
to be a good helper, Sasifi earns herself a wonderful surprise.
