From the publisher:
Is it right to ask Mama to pay a debt she knows nothing about? Yet, Sothulu, the money lender, insists on taking Bodo away; the family must do without the cow which gives it milk. But can Sothulu get away with all his unreasonable demands? He ruins Noma’s sand and the little girl demands her payment. Sothulu meets his match! An exciting battle of wits ensues. Who wins? Sothulu or Noma?
