Rata-Pata-Scata-Fata

Rata-Pata-Scata-Fata: A Caribbean Story by Phyllis Gershator, illustrated by Holly Meade (2005, Starbright Books).

Set in St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands, this is a cute story about a little boy named Junjun who hates helping his mom with chores and discovers that when he chants "rata-pata-scata-fata," his wishes come true and something always happens to help make his chores magically get done for him. 

I especially like the torn collage illustrations for this book, done by the late Holly Meade
