They probably have a website and that's for you to research, but Dockside Bookstore in Havensight Mall on STT probably carries the best selection of Caribbean books available, period. I'm having a very senior moment as of this writing but Willie (you don't want to know what I'm muttering to myself right now because I can't remember his last name) has written two awesome children's books. Obviously his name will come to me in the early hours tomorrow when I awake from a deep sleep with, "voila" but, damn, not now. He was a longtime teacher at Antilles. Damn!

From Thierry's wife... not Thierry

Kallaloo! : a Caribbean tale / by David and Phillis Gershator ; illustrated by Diane Greenseid.
They also wrote: Greetings Sun and Bread is for Eating.

The Gershator's live on St. Thomas... the level of Kallaloo is probably around first grade... my daughter and I really enjoyed it ... but we have not read the other's yet.. The illustrations are quite colorful and added to the tale.

Hope this helps.
