Critical Praise

"Too special for just once-a-week reading, Eloise Greenfield's 20 exuberant poems are matched by the bright colors of Mr. Amos Ferguson's life-filled paintings. His native Caribbean glows as vividly in the words as in the full-page primitive pictures. A perfect collaboration between two master imagemakers." - School Library Journal

"An enthusiastic tour of island life." - Publishers Weekly
