It's carnival time! It's the first carnival since Malaika's mother moved to Canada to find a good job. Her mother promised she would send money home for a costume, and Malaika and her grandmother have been waiting and waiting, but the money hasn't arrived. How will Malaika be able to dance in the parade? It's time to get creative!
This heartwarming story uses vibrant collage-style illustrations and colloquial language that will resonate with Caribbean-Canadian families and anyone who has felt the long-distance love of family. Dedicated by author Nadia L. Hohn to the students at the Africentric Alternative School in Toronto.
