Whether you grew up in Jamaica or not, this heartwarming collection of stories and poems brings you home. At the heart of this collection is the innocence of childhood, with its wonders and woes- learning to ride, squabbling with siblings, coping with loss, and the ever-present fear of duppies. The poems woven throughout the book provide entertaining snapshots of Jamaican culture, managing to say so much in just a few lines. The author uses patois to hilarious effect, as she gently pokes fun at old-fashioned values, Overall, Peedum is a skillful tapestry of memories, traditions and Jamaican folklore that is deeply personal and yet universally appealing. **REVIEWS** Peedum sweeps you up into colourful narratives, bursting with imagery, and carries you on a journey, through a Jamaican village, straight into the hearts and souls of its vivacious characters. - Jo Cooke Author, Frommers Day By Day Jamaica
