    Jean-Claude Martineau is such an amazing talent. I never imagined that I would have the opportunity to laugh while reading the book. And it happened on multiple occasions. I also could relate to the story; I'm also from a small town; although my experience wasn't as intense as Mr. Martineau's, I also had to deal with classmates who grew up in the capital city and treated others from the small towns differently.

    This translation is such a treasure, clearly a labor of love. I am only a couple of chapters in, but I’m struck by how well the expressions and cadences of Haitian Creole lend themselves to Hurston’s poetic prose and to the colorful VBE spoken by her characters. Even the very appropriate Haitian version of TeaCake’s name had me smiling. Mesi anpil pou bel travay sa a, Zermatt.🌻

    I love the images and stories these books represent. They make a great gift for anyone who wants to empower their children through the Haitian language and culture!

    Mwen renmen imaj yo ak istwa liv sa yo reprezante. Yo fè yon gwo kado pou nenpòt moun ki vle bay pitit yo pouvwa nan lang ak kilti ayisyen an!

    Ahh ahh ahh gason jalou! Great story, thanks for sharing this story that I'm sure a lot of readers will relate to. It's a great conversation starter, an opportunity for those of us who grew up in Haiti to share our customs with our kids who were born here. My wife shares a lot of those stories with our kids and they love them.

    Wonderful story very relatable; we all had something that frightened us as kids. Not sharing what my fear was with you though :) Passing it on to my niece to get used to reading Kreyòl. Thank you for writing your story in Kreyòl and passing our beautiful language down to the children in written format.

    I am so thankful to the authors and illustrators of these books. The stories are well written are a must for any library that seeks to develop the mind of our children. Great work!
    Mwen rekonesan anpil pou otè yo ak ilistratè liv sa yo. Istwa yo byen ekri yo se yon dwe pou nenpòt bibliyotèk ki ap chèche devlope lide timoun nou yo. Gran travay!

    I am extremely happy with my purchase. It came in a timely manner and Zermatt has wonderful customer service and will answer all of your questions. I also purchased Je yo te fikse sou Bondye. I can't wait to finish both books and increase my proficiency in Kreyol. I love what this company is doing!

2 women making books in Haitian Creole

Abdaly Lessage and Zermatt Scutt, two friends living in Jacmel Haiti, founded the small Edition in December 2017. We want to tell our own stories. We want to facilitate those in our communities who wish to publish their own stories. We also translate beautiful works from other cultures into Haitian Creole.

Nou se Edisyon 2 Kreyòl Yo nan vil Jakmèl; yon Edisyon Abdaly Lessage ak Zermatt Scutt, 2 zanmi (2 kreyòl), k ap viv ansanm, k ap travay ansanm, k ap imajine lòt reyalite ansanm, kreye an desanm 2017. Depi lè a, nou gen chans jwenn plizyè lòt kreyòl k ap kolabore avèk nou pou pèmèt nou vanse ak travay Edisyon an tankou Audeva Joseph, yon jenn ilistratris ki gen anpil talan. Objektif nou se prezante bèl istwa nan lang Kreyòl la. Nou vle ankouraje pwòp tèt nou ak lòt moun nan kominote Ayisyèn lan, Ayiti e aletranje, pou nou rakonte epi ekri istwa pa nou, nan fason pa nou, nan lang pa nou. An menm tan, nou vle mete bèl istwa yo ekri nan lang etranje nan lang Kreyòl la pou plezi ak devlopman lespri nou, pou enrichi imajinasyon nou diplis.
