Mimi, a 7 year old girl and her brother Brayojust recently moved in to a new city Nairobi. A city where animals and humans co-exist together and home to 42 different tribes, it is full of diverse culture and adventure. In their new school this dynamic duo becomes friends with Tunde, a goat that has a knack of getting into trouble who brings them up to speed with rules and guidelines of this new world. On the first day during their morning break the trio have an unexpected turn of events when they get summoned by a magical desk. The magical desk has been in the school for centuries waiting for the chosen ones to arrive. This magical desk is a portal that helps the chosen ones to travel back in time through different cultures in Africa to help them learn about the forgotten ways of their people and solves puzzles in the modern world that they currently live in. But Mr. Bakali, the principal who is a strong advocate of erasing the “unsophisticated cultures” as he calls them, and Nyawawa, the mythical lake spirit, are constantly on the trios’ case trying to catch them using the desk so that they can destroy it forever
