    Auntie Luce’s talking paintings

    2018

    by Francie Latour and Ken Daley

    "Every winter, a young girl flies to Haiti to visit her Auntie Luce, a painter. The moment she steps off the plane, she feels a wall of heat, and familiar sights soon follow - the boys selling water ice by the pink cathedral, the tap tap buses in the busy streets, the fog and steep winding road to her aunt's home in the mountains. The girl has always loved Auntie Luce's paintings - the houses tucked into the hillside, colorful fishing boats by the water, heroes who fought for and won the country's independence. Through Haiti's colors, the girl comes to understand this place her family calls home."--|cProvided by publisher

She does not laugh at Mr Dry-Bone's conjuring tricks and acrobatics so Anancy decides to ask the animals for help in winning her over. -- publisher
