Delroy in the Marog Kingdom by Billy Elm, Macmillan, 2009, an adventure with all sorts of strange fantasy creatures.
Bernie and the Captain's Ghost by Hazel Campbell, Carlong Publishers, 2010, and adventure with real danger.
Whereas I've mentioned the two previous books before, I've only just recently got a copy of the next.Ferdie the Fisherman in Negril by Dennis Ranston, Twin Guinep Publishers, 2008. This story has adventure, but it also has a wealth of information about Jamaican cultural practices woven into it. The delightful illustrations by Dennis remind us of a fascinating way of life in Jamaican.
I have, from time to time, promised a number of people to give them a list of Jamaican children's books, so perhaps I should try to get this done for Independence, with the added information concerning their availability, that is, whether they are in print. We'll see. I think it's a good idea. I can also include books form the wider Caribbean. Please tell me about any that you know about.
