Tradewinds title Boonoonoonous Hair has received a very favorable review in Quill & Quire. The review praises author Olive Senior’s playful use of language complemented by the energy and life of Laura James’s illustrations.
“Jamaican-Canadian writer Olive Senior uses playful rhymes to speak directly to young readers who may struggle with standing out from other kids their age. . .The artwork by Laura James – who is of Antiguan heritage – is an explosion of colour and energy, with each one of her illustrations perfectly echoing the vibrancy of Jamilla’s ever-changing electric and kinetic hairstyles. . . Together, author and illustrator show young readers that being different isn’t a bad thing.”
