Caribbean Canvas

Caribbean Canvas by Frané Lessac (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 1987). 

My mom found this for me at a used bookstore recently.  Lessac is one of our favorite illustrators.  She's perhaps most well known for My Little Island which was featured on Reading Rainbow.  This book is a compilation of West Indian poetry and proverbs illustrated with Lessac's artwork.  Listed in the image captions are the islands where each image was created.  It was fun seeing several pictures from my boyfriend's native Grenada, including the one on the cover.
