Mama and Gogo are tremendously excited about the new house they are moving to, but Jamela likes where they are and doesn't want to go. She starts putting her books and school things into a box, but eventually gives up, packs herself away and goes off to sleep. And just when the big truck is about to drive off, Mama suddenly shouts, "Wait, wait! Where's Jamela?" Mrs Zibi, Greasy Hands and even Christmas the chicken make an appearance in this delightful new African township story in which Jamela finally discovers that there's no place like home.
