An original folktale set in modern-day Cameroon. Yoyo has listened to Mama Cécile’s song about how to make ndolé (bitterleaf stew) her entire life and now that she is finally old enough to make it herself, she knows exactly what to do. But slicing the bitterleaf, grinding the pumpkin, measuring out the shrimp takes so long and Yoyo is confident that her variation on the stew will be good enough.

As Mama Cécile and Yoyo set off to market, Mama reminds Yoyo what will happen if she refuses a fair price for the stew—Brother Coin, the Great Spirit of the Market, will put a curse on their market bowl. When Yoyo refuses to heed Mama’s advice, she is faced with the task of trying to regain a blessing from the god himself.

The Market Bowl is a story to teach young children a lesson about patience, humility, and the value of a fair price. There is further information about Cameroon and its people and traditions as well as a recipe for ndolé—Cameroon’s national food dish.
