This book is an absolute gem!

“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.

This sparkling story sings

“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.”
