Tata and the Big Bad Bull by Juleus Ghunta (Monday Meme-ing)

Reviewed

I just uploaded my review of new children’s picture book Tata and the Big Bad Bull:

“…if lower primary school teachers and parents with young readers are looking for a culturally-relatable read-aloud or read-a-long with humorous cues– bunny, duck, and dog lined up with the children to catch the bus among the first of these; colourful detail -the bee at the entrance to bee hive tunnel and the crocodile with sharp teeth on full display at the foot of the bridge over crocodile pool- among them; and rhyming couplets and repetition of a certain key phrase, this could be a good pick.”

Read the full review.

I’m linking this with Book Date’s It’s Monday, what are you reading? (the kid lit edition)

Read

What am I reading? I’ve got several books in progress – dipping in to them as my schedule and attention allows. This week I dipped in to Marlon James’ A Brief History of Seven Killings (I’m about 455 pages in and still about 1/3 to go; man this book is long…and dense) and Malcolm Gladwell’s Outliers: the Story of Success (only about 48 pages in). I’m enjoying both tbh but time to read is just scarce, man. I need to ride the bus more; that’s when I seem to get most of my reading done.

Blogged

I haven’t blogged much here this week but, if you’re interested, here are some posts from my other blog: A post on a local art showa post about a Caribbean writer being tapped for a PEN lifetime achievement award, and a post on new film Skate Kitchen whose cinematographer is from Antigua. As for the blogosphere, I’m most looking forward to seeing the film Black Panther, but after reading Eva Langston’s What can a Wrinkle in Time Teach us about Writing? I’m keen to see that one too (though I haven’t read the book).

  1. I’ve heard about A Brief History of Seven Killings – and really looking forward to finding it. I own a copy of Outliers – but haven’t had time to read it too. 🙂
