Sky Dancing ~ Written by Ellen Erwin ~ Illustrations by Renata Fryshara
This tale is so tall, it’s on stilts! Ruby and Jamal dream of becoming mocko jumbies, the flamboyant Afro-Caribbean stilt walkers who perform in carnivals and parades. The local troupe is for boys only, but with help from her cousin, Ruby secretly begins to learn the art of stilt dancing. Parents and teachers will love the themes of fairness, friendship, and perseverance, and young readers will love the lavish illustrations, which sparkle with Caribbean colors. Don’t miss the magic of the mocko jumbies.
