Book Reviews

“...This latest presentation of Belize legends, myths, and stories just proves how firmly they have remained in our universal psyche. What GrissyG and Dismas have done is to use the backgrounds to pinpoint the specific locations in Belize and that is so unique. This is a wonderful addition to our very limited collection of Belize-oriented literature.”
Araceli “Lita” Hunter Krohn,
Belizean Educator and Historian.
“I liked how you said one purpose for the existence of these characters is to make young and old more careful how they live their lives and help them avoid trouble and horrors befalling them...Good work.”
Tom Tenowich
