Accompanied by Ken Daley's vibrant, sun-soaked artwork, Sadé Smith's debut picture book Granny's Kitchen is the perfect readaloud for budding chefs everywhere.

Shelly-Ann lives with her Granny on the beautiful island of Jamaica. When Shelly-Ann becomes hungry, she asks her Granny for something to eat. Granny tells her "Gyal, you betta can cook!" and teaches Shelly-Ann how to get in touch with her Jamaican roots through the process of cooking.

As Shelly-Ann tries each recipe, everything goes wrong. But when Granny is too tired to cook one morning, Shelly-Ann will have to find the courage to try one more time and prepare the perfect Jamaican breakfast.

Praise for Granny's Kitchen:

Warm and inviting. Daley's vibrant, highly saturated illustrations bolster the appeal and are sure to entice young readers--and perhaps encourage them to try their own hand in the kitchen. ... A vibrant, upbeat story of a determined girl and her love of food. --Kirkus Reviews

About the Author

Sadé Smith started writing in third grade when her teacher would create books with cardboard covers wrapped in wallpaper. She loves using her imagination to create stories for people to escape from reality, even if it's just for a short period. When she's not writing, she's designing or doing some sort of construction project. She can swing a hammer as well as she can swing a pen.

Ken Daley is the prize-winning illustrator of Granny's Kitchen by Sadé Smith, Joseph's Big Ride by Terry Farish--an Ontario Library Association Best Bet--and Auntie Luce's Talking Paintings by Francie Latour. Ken was born in Canada to parents who emigrated from Dominica. His art and illustrations are inspired by his African-Caribbean roots and he has exhibited his work in Canada, the U.S. and the Caribbean. His artwork can be found in numerous private and public collections.
