Description

See below for English description.

Malaika est heureuse de retrouver sa mère, même si cela signifie qu'elle doit déménager au Canada où tout est différent. Il y fait froid, les gens ont un fort accent et le Carnaval de Québec ne ressemble en rien à celui que Malaika aimait tant aux Caraïbes! L'adaptation à son nouvel environnement et à sa nouvelle famille risque d'être difficile...

La prose de Nadia L. Hohn souligne l'importance de la famille et de la tolérance dans cette histoire chaleureuse où se côtoient les différences culturelles.

 

Malaika is happy to be reunited with her mother, but it means moving to Canada, where everything is different. It's cold in Québec City, no one understands when she talks and Carnival is nothing like the celebration Malaika knows from her home in the Caribbean! Will she be able to adjust to her new family and environment?

Nadia L. Hohn's prose, written in a blend of standard English and Caribbean patois, tells a warm story about the importance of family, especially when adjusting to a new home.

Original title: Malaika's Winter Carnival
