KIRKUS REVIEW

Twenty-six Caribbean words with rhythmic, rhymed comments (e.g., ""k for Kaiso. Song with a sweet-sweet jump-up beat. 1 for lickerish. So greedy all you do is eat-eat"")--extended by concluding explanatory notes and joyously illustrated in bold scratchboard (recalling the vigor of Azarian's woodcuts), with vibrant color added.
