“This book is a cultural gem and entertaining addition to any children’s book collection. It is a fun and interesting book with beautiful illustrations. Parents and kids can be entertained reading this story which introduces Jamaican dialect (patois) with translations provided at the back of the book. Must have for any children’s book library.”
“This book is an absolute gem! I hope there are many more coming – we definitely need more books in patois and the idea of working with proverbs and folktales is so brilliant. We all loved the lyricism of the book.
“Nadine has captured the very essence of Jamaican culture in a performance folktale that will keep children and adults entertained by the storytelling experience and the jollity of traditional songs and music. It celebrates important virtues and lessons on humility that will surely captivate audiences in Jamaica, across borders and in the Jamaican Diaspora.”
“This sparkling story sings! Like a delightful ditty echoing in the subconscious long after the initial encounter, ‘Donkey Seh’ flows like a rich river, inviting us to share in its lessons and linger in its laughter. The unmistakably Jamaican language and cultural nuances, as well as the engaging intersection of learning and humour, is resonant and reminiscent of the late, great Louise Bennett-Coverley.”
