Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In a bouncy, song-like dialectpresented phoneticallyan animated child describes Grannie's weekly visit, recounting what the woman wears and carries in her purse, what she enjoys as a snack and how she freshens up after her bus ride. A concluding note explains that this tale, written with great affection, is based on the author's own childhood. Like her young narrator, debut children's book author Sisnett grew up in Panama speaking Caribbean English and had a close rapport with her grandmother. Though in places overly repetitive and short on action, the tale endearingly conveys the girl's sincere delight and the mutual love shared by the two: "Ah say, `Oh, Grannie! Ah luv yu so much!' She say, `From de very first time Ah set eyes 'pon yu, Ah did luv yu plenty, plenty me luv!" A full rainbow of robust colors fills first-time picture book artist Lusebrink's full-spread paintings, blooming with tropical flowers: on the bushes outside, in an arrangement indoors and on a variety of fabrics. Though characters sometimes strike a stiff pose, there are plenty of particulars on these festive pages to catch a child's eyeincluding the mischievous antics of a blue monkey scampering through the house. Ages 6-up. (Sept.)
Children's Literature - Sue Preslar
Children will thrill to the sound of the Caribbean English dialect. This story is definitely best when heard aloud. It tells of a little girl's excitement on the day each week when her beloved grandmother visits. The colorful illustrations that accompany the story translate the excitement of this cherished relationship.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3This story in which a young female protagonist dances with joy when her grandmother comes to visit is told in a Caribbean-English dialect. Phonetic spellings allow readers unfamiliar with its sound to approximate a Caribbean accent while reading the story aloud. However, despite a promising start with enjoyable rhythmic repetition, the rhythm of the text soon fizzles out. In the end, most of the narrative is just a description of Grannie's clothes, perfume, and hair, with little action to hold children's interest. Brightly colored scenes of beaches, native animals, and the family members add to the Caribbean ambiance of this additional purchase.Denise E. Agosto, formerly at Midland County Public Library, TX
