The Protectors’ Pledge by Danielle McClean


the Protectors pledge.2

JV our resident hero is a darling and he could be your little brother or your big brother – a cousin, nephew or uncle. He is very much a Caribbean youth. His adventure is the “bush” adventure we all dream of as a kid but our mothers, well my mother never let me near the forest. He has a peppery grandma and gets in trouble when he disobeys her.

The village comes with a nosy neighbor, a market with tamarind balls, and someone named Mr. Chin.

The story is believable and it flows wonderfully. There are a few additions though, of the mythical folklore-ish kind.

I love folklore and Danielle effortlessly weaves a web that entertains and teaches.
