JJ49 cover.

This humorous play, set in a Pasifika market, has a message about financial literacy – we need to think carefully about how we spend money. When Dad takes Kele and his older sister Vika to the market, Kele quickly spends his money and then sees something else he really wants but now can’t afford. Vika offers to buy it for him if he pays her back, but Dad points out that there might be more to this deal than Kele realises.
