KEENS-DOUGLAS, Richardo





Mama God, Papa God (Tradewind, $19.95)
Info



Mama God and Papa God were tired of sitting around in the dark. “Let there be light,” Papa God said. Soon he and Mama God were making a world and filling it with trees and flowers and wind and rain. And people. But not too many people, Mama God said. “We have to leave something for them to do.” With droll humour, storyteller Richardo Keens-Douglas retells Mama God, Papa God (Tradewind, $19.95), a Caribbean creation tale. Stefan Czernecki’s exuberant illustrations owe their color and inspiration to Haitian folk art. 1-896580-16-5
