Malaika's Winter Carnival
Hardcover - English

When Malaika moves to a cold northern city, there's a lot to get used to, especially Carnival in the wintertime! This follow-up to "Malaika's Costume" is an uplifting story about immigration, family, and community. Full color. ...

Malaika is happy to be reunited with Mummy, but it means moving to a different country, where everything is different. It's cold in her new city, no one understands when she talks and Carnival is nothing like the celebration Malaika knows from home

When Mummy marries Mr. Fr d ric, Malaika gets a new sister called Ad le. Her new family is nice, but Malaika misses Grandma. She has to wear a puffy purple coat, learn a new language and get used to calling this new place home. Things come to a head when Mummy and Mr. Fr d ric take Malaika and Ad le to a carnival. Malaika is dismayed that there are no colorful costumes and that it's nothing like Carnival at home in the Caribbean She is so angry that she kicks over Ad le's snow castle, but that doesn't make her feel any better. It takes a video chat with Grandma to help Malaika see the good things about her new home and family.

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. Readers of the first Malaika book will want to find out what happens when she moves to Canada, and will enjoy seeing Malaika and her family once again depicted through Irene Luxbacher's colorful collage illustrations.
