From the back cover:
“This charming story based on an ancient myth is retold by the island’s children with refreshing liveliness.” Dr. Lennox Honychurch, Historian, Dominica.
“The best story I’ve heard in ages. I loved the snake – he brings so much good luck.” Joshua, Year 3, John Burns Primary School, Wandsworth, London.
Many, many, many years ago, a great diamond-crested snake – with magical powers – slithered out of the sea and went to live in a cave in the mountains of a Caribbean island… Why did he roar so loudly? What was his magic? What happened when strangers arrived? What is he doing now? Find out in The Snake King of the Kalinago!
