>>>Throwback Grace’s Merrymakers

I don’t think I ever shared this here. Go here to read about it.

Go here to read about the book.

That’s the mango tree faerie – the character inspiring our mas – in her hands.

I have other plans for this book – example the play I adapted from it and revised during the pandemic and would like to do something with, not sure what, maybe for next year’s Book and Copyright Day if I can get funding.

I had a cloth doll when I was a kid. I’ve been thinking it would be cool to see the main character, maybe even the faerie as a cloth doll – we need more merchandise from Black children’s books in the marketplace. I need to figure out how to make that happen.

Never say never. After all, we made the troupe happen.

And believe it or not, our mas troupe of three started with an idea for a Carnival float. And I kinda sorta would like to see our idea for the tree on stilts play out, some how, some way, some day.

Carnival has been gone for two years; never underestimate the power of the impossible.
