Some reviews of the book:
Midwest Book Review:
Highly recommended, a top pick for art library holdings.
Children’s Books Author Maryann V. Macdonald:
You've never seen images anything like these...it's hard to find the words to describe them, so I'll try for just one: A boy in black and red with flowing gold "wings" is striding joyfully along a road bordered by a corrugated iron fence, but he has risen above that impoverished world on his stilts, and is profiled by the magic of a purple sky....
The Caribbean Review of Books:
Any artist who succeeds in opening up aspects of a culture to a foreign audience can count it as a job well done. When, however, that artist succeeds in opening up aspects of a culture to its own people, then the job becomes all the more remarkable. This is precisely what German photographer Stefan Falke has done with his resplendent book Moko Jumbies: The Dancing Spirits of Trinidad. read the whole review
