Free sample

In this first book of the bilingual Janjak and Freda series, cousins Janjak and Freda go with their godmother on an exciting adventure to Haiti's famous Iron Market. While there, they make many new friends, taste new fruits, and show the value of helping others when a runaway goat causes havoc in the market. The colorful text and beautiful illustrations will leave children dreaming up their own adventures.

This story is told in such a way that the characters, scenery, and plot will be meaningful to both English speaking children and Creole speaking children. Rather than a literal translation, the Creole text has been rewritten by Wally Turnbull to provide the most authentic experience for Creole speakers.

About the author

Elizabeth Turnbull was born and raised in Haiti where she grew up surrounded by the people and landscapes of Say to These Mountains.

After graduating from Quisqueya Christian School, in Port-au-Prince, Elizabeth went on to study Spanish and Journalism at Wake Forest University and received her MA in Latin American and Caribbean Studies from Florida International University.

As a "Third Culture Kid," she sees herself as living between two worlds, never fully belonging to one or the other. She's spent a lifetime trying to reconcile those worlds, to help both sides understand one another. Writing, she believes, is the best tool she has for that.

Today, Elizabeth is the Senior Editor for Light Messages Publishing where she is immensely grateful to immerse herself in new stories every day. She is also the author of two children’s books: Janjak and Freda Go to the Iron Market and Bonnwit Kabrit.

Elizabeth lives on a budding farm in Hillsborough, NC, with her husband Roberto Copa Matos. Connect with her online at lightmessages.com/elizabeth-turnbull. Follow her on Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest @ejturnbull and on Facebook at elizabethjturnbull.
