What ReadersAre Saying:
"We read this as a family read before bedtime.The kids enjoyed the characters in the book and learned some creole dialect as well. I enjoyed the positive role model Jaden presented. Being smart is COOL!"
"Absolutely excellent. The author's depiction of a kindergartner is fantastic. My kindergartner really identified with Jaden as he also likes his teacher, has all kinds of friends, and is ALWAYS begging for screen time...As a Black parent, it's refreshing to read a book that's NOT about stereo typically Black interests, racism, or urban life. Buying Episode 2 TODAY!"
"Wonderful story! This little boy just comes to life for you! :) An excellent book to read and share with your children or just yourself! :D"

About the Author:

Marti Dumas is a mama who spends most of her time doing mama things.  You know-- feeding ducks in parks, constructing Halloween costumes, facilitating heated negotiations, reading aloud, throwing raw vegetables on a plate and calling it dinner, and shouting, "watch out!" whenever there are dog piles on the walk to school.  
 
Sometimes she writes, but only very occasionally and in the early morning. And, yes.  She really does really, really like fantasy books. A lot.

Review:

Jaden Toussaint, an inquisitive budding scientist with a spectacular Afro, feels like an outsider in his family. While his parents and sister are all bibliophiles, he hates to read: he'd rather get his hands on a tablet. After circulating a petition among his fellow kindergarteners campaigning for more computer time, Jaden's ingenuity is rewarded. This charming first installment in the Jaden Toussaint, the Greatest chapter-book series features succinct but vivid characterizations and abundant humor (the family's pets include a guinea pig that "never has the same name two weeks in a row," and Jaden's father "prefers to be called 'baba,' which means 'father' in Swahili. Does not speak Swahili"). Muravski's b&w illustrations, nicely integrated throughout, are also an asset, enhancing this story's appeal for readers who may be as reluctant as Jaden to pick up a book. Ages 5-7. --Publishers Weekly
