“Lost at Carnival”: Storytime with author Gail Morong

With fancy costumes and big crowds, Trinidad Carnival is full of colour, music and excitement! In Lost at Carnival by Gail Morong, the ‘mas is captured in stunning watercolour illustrations by artist Jackie Hinkson, and we meet Akil, a young boy who gets lost when he is separated from his school band. This important story is both a vibrant celebration of our culture and a valuable lesson about being safe in public.

Lost at Carnival by Gail Morong is available at most major bookstores and gift shops in Trinidad and Tobago. Contact @lostatcarnival on Facebook or email to order copies!
