            Efa and the mosquito

            2009

            by Alscess Lewis-Brown and Cynthia Hatfield

            One morning, Efa rescues Ms. Aedes, a very smart, fast-talking mosquito trapped in a net. Her act of kindness is rewarded with the granting of a wish. Not even Worren, Efa’s science-loving older brother, could prepare her for the events that lay ahead. With the Virgin Islands as the background, Efa and the Mosquito is a fun and educational tale, set to the beat of an old Caribbean folk song. Read the story of a curious girl, her music loving family, a very special mosquito, and their magical and unforgettable adventure together. -- from publisher
