Broo ‘Nansi and the Tar Baby

Broo ‘Nansi and the Tar Baby

A U.S. Virgin Islands Story

Collected and written by Dr. Lois Hassell-Habtes – Story as told by Ector Roebuck

Broo Tukuma knows better, but as the good brother that he is, he can’t watch his nephews starve. So, much against his better judgement, he takes Broo ‘Nansi (that good for nothing fellow) to get food from his secret garden. The trip turns into a disaster when Broo ‘Nansi disobeys his brother’s strict orders.

Another great Broo ‘Nansi story filled with the humor and wisdom that only this ancient little spider can impart. A must-read for all Virgin Islanders, and for everyone who loves a good tale.

Caribella

Caribella

By Phillis Gershator

Is this a Cinderella story?

Caribel’s stepmother treats her cruelly. But in Caribel’s story, there are also people who care for her: an uncle, who is now her pen pal; a spritely old lady who lives hidden away in the bush; and a devoted school teacher. Caribel hopes that someday she’ll become a real, “inside” member of her family, if only she can be good enough. She tries her best. She does her chores. She wins the school spelling bee. But what does good enough mean? Can she be good and keep secrets, too? Or speak her mind? Or break a promise? Or, when the time comes, save her own life?
