The Kenkey Party

Regular price $4.00 $0.00

One morning, Akwei and Naa wanted to have a Kenkey party. But there was no fish.

Follow Akwei and Naa on a fun adventure!


While The Kenkey Party is written and illustrated for Ghanaian 5 to 10-year old foodies and is best read out loud by both adults and children. After reading this, they will not only enjoy the story, but will also learn that sitting down to a meal of kɔmi, shito, and fried fish is not simply a fun party but a creative, thoughtful, and laborious process to which a whole community contributes.

Originally known as “otim,” kenkey evolved from the English word “cornmeal” to “kɔmi.” This Ghanaian children's book was written by Oyoo Nii-Owoo and illustrated by her sister Efua Okine.


This EBook is also available in the Ghanaian language Ga.
