A Caribbean Tale

Written by David and Phillis Gershator

Illustrated by Diane Greenseid

Efa and the Mosquito


Efa and the Mosquito

Written by Alscess Lewis-Brown

Illustrated by Cynthia Hatfield

One morning, Efa rescues Ms. Aedes, a very smart, fast-talking mosquito trapped in a net. Her act of kindness is rewarded with the granting of a wish. Not even Worren, Efa’s science-loving older brother, could prepare her for the amazing events that lay ahead.

With the Virgin Islands as the background, Efa and the Mosquito is a fun and educational tale, set to the beat of an old Caribbean folk song. Read the story of a curious girl, her music-loving family, a very special mosquito, and their magical adventure together.
