Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Uma Krishnaswami
"If you go to Jamaica, bring your shorts and T-shirt!" Failing that, you can take a map whiz quiz, learn about the Jamaican flag, try out a smattering of patois, and speculate about pirates of long ago, with this colorful offering from Carolrhoda's "A Ticket To..." series (with a range of titles from Argentina to Vietnam). From dub poetry to jerk to Rastafarianism, the book blends text, photographs, and interesting little sidebars, and includes a glossary, pronunciation guide, index, and reading list.
