Mystery and Magic

When Bamidele spots two Moko Jumbies outside of his window one night he is determined to uncover the mystery behind the masked stilted dancers. He embarks on a quest: Are Moko Jjumbies to be feared or are they really protective magical ancestral spirits?

Praise for Look! A Moko Jumbie

"The narrative breaks into a wonderful reflection of the Caribbean...[and] culminates in a magical dance beneath the trees which will delight readers. Opal Palmer Adisa's words create colourful images."--Diane Browne, author of Abigail's Glorious Hair and the Commonwealth Foundation prize winning story, The Happiness Dress.

"Opal Palmer Adisa skilfully, artfully, and with great lyricism shares her tale of a child's encounter with the Moko Jumbie. The telling...interweaves the elements of a rich cultural setting and those of a loving family, which all work together to keep a child safe and sound."--Tregenza A. Roach, author of The Blessing of Rain, The Lesson Box, and All This Is Love

"Opal Palmer Adisa brings the spirit of the Caribbean alive in this vibrant book which evokes the warmth and colour of the islands. The vivid setting and the sparkling descriptions are just delicious. A joy to read."--Valerie Bloom, author of several children's novels and books of poetry including Jaws and Claws and Things With Wings.
