Zebo Nooloo Chinoo by Lynette Commissiong

Young Isha has to find out the old woman's name but, try as she might, she cannot guess. Who can help her and why does she need to know? Only a remarkable crab Solistine knows the secret. In this classic, beautifully illustrated folk tale, the famous Caribbean crab is changed for evermore, and so are the faces of old women. The latest addition to Macmillan Caribbean's list of highly illustrated children's books this is another example of why the Caribbean produces wonderful children's books. The merging of traditional folk tales and modern illustrations tell a delightful story that is wonderful to share with children
