Good Boy Milo

Good Boy Milo is a children’s picture book written and illustrated by Grenadians Alyssa Bierzynski and Elizabeth Lander.

Anansi Plays Fancy Mas

“When Anansi gets told that he cannot play Fancy Mas, he decides to take matters into his own hands and start his own mas band. Will Anansi be able to deliver the costumes so everyone can play mas?”

Anansi Plays Fancy Mas is a twist on a classic folktale as told by Kamille John, Neila Ettienne and Alyssa Bierzynski. This short story was part of Expo 2020 Dubai seven-part anthology of short stories called Children’s Tales From Around the World.
