Client Book: The Shark and the Parrotfish, and Other Caribbean Fables

July 23, 2013

I'm very happy about the upcoming release of The Shark and the Parrotfish, and Other Caribbean Fables written by a client of mine, Mario Picayo. As a lover and student of the Aesopica, I enjoyed editing this book which borrows from the Aesopic tradition.

Mario is a strong writer and was very easy to work with, taking all my suggestions into careful consideration. He had to revise the manuscript several times and took it all in stride— mark of a pro!

The book is beautifully illustrated by Barbadian artist Cherise Ward whom we featured in the May 2013 issue of Anansesem. Published by Campanita Books/Little Bell Caribbean, the book will be released later this year, but they've just revealed the cover. Check it out!
