Adventure at Brimstone Hill book. The child characters are believable and I want to read the next in the series. I wish that the illustrations were larger, but that is a simple format issue.

I enjoyed this book. But...even though it started as a children's book, with even a cute monkey in it, it quickly turned into a history lesson. And a very lengthy one. This was very interesting to me, but I can imagine my kids eyes glazing over during these chapters.

I bought the first two books by Carol Ottley-Mitchell and the reviews from the children who read them have been great. They really enjoyed the stories and are now looking forward to the next one. Every child on my gift list will be receiving copies of the three books. These books will make gift-giving easy.

Children need history books highlighting their achievements to the past. Learning history from their perspective is the surest way to get them more excited about this subject and to ground them in the present. I started reading this book with my 6 year old son who reads at 4th grade level. He beamed at the sight of the word Caribbean. He smiled at the fact that the main character was a boy. He also smiled with pride that Africa was included in the story. This is a good indicator that history makes sense to children (or anyone) when they are able to connect with the characters.
Similar to the approach used in the docu-drama Sankofa, Ottley-Mitchell's main characters are transported back in the 18th century, during slavery days. Unlike the main character in Sankofa who was bound to repeat the past because of her ignorance of it, the children of in the Adventures at Brimstone Hill "went back" due to their interest and desire to know and shape it. We get a glimpse of the "past" through the children's eyes; neutral and unapologetic. This book is not about slavery, but rather how children, excited about the past, engaged in serious "adult" issues; while in the present. We know so very little about how enslaved children lived. This book allows us to explore this very sensitive topic while also highlighting a major silence in the field of Caribbean history.
One of the main questions I struggle with as a parent and as an educator is when to introduce the topic of slavery. How do I introduce the fact that Africans came to the Caribbean out of force and were brutalized and enslaved? What is the best way to introduce this topic so my children see the strength and victory that was overcome? Do I want to burden them with this history? Hence the beauty of Carol Ottley-Mitchell's Adventure at Brimstone Hill; part history and part fiction, this book sheds light on some important aspect of Caribbean history, providing you a good opportunity to start this topic.
The best way to teach history is have children re-enact it; as players and stake holders. My son is interested in making his own whale ship. We can explore items carried, how and where. It's also important to me that the book discusses a UNESCO Heritage Site located in the Caribbean; raising awareness of the regions' institutional history.
And for these reasons and more, this book should be read by all. It opens so many doors for analysis; both academically and culturally.

`Adventure at Brimstone Hill' by Carol Ottley-Mitchell should become required reading for every Kittitian and Nevisian child and no doubt it will eventually become required reading for all Caribbean children.

This is not because it is written by a local author, or because it is set at Brimstone Hill, our local World Heritage Site but because it has all the exciting features of children's books that have become universally popular. It can be regarded as "creative expression for entertainment and education."

Those of the older generation of the fifties and sixties may remember going to the Public Library and fervently hoping they would find one of Enid Blyton's exciting books that recorded the adventures of children and how they found themselves in many mysterious escapades. The younger generation of the nineties and twenties will have waited impatiently for a new Harry Potter book. You would have been enthralled by the imagination and the ability to dwell in a parallel world of mystery where the dead were as active as the living, and `voices of the past' were clearly heard. Adventure at Brimstone Hill contains all of these elements which become even more poignant because they are set in our own landscape at our own Brimstone Hill.

Carol Ottley-Mitchell has been able to create an intriguing tale which emerges effortlessly as children go on a field trip to Brimstone Hill. They find themselves becoming part of one of the military adventures that occurred there and are able to actively participate in it. Read it and you will see! I'll say no more.

The book is well crafted, easy to read and convincingly reflects local school culture and relationships. Apart from its entertainment value, it can be used by teachers as a launching pad to discuss the history of Brimstone Hill and of St. Kitts. It can also be used by guidance counselors to discuss school relationships and it makes children see that they, too, can play a role in the outcome of events in their lives.

Congrats must go to Carol-Ottley Mitchell on this the first of what she says will be a Caribbean Adventure series. Carol is the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Clive Ottley of St. Kitts. She lives and works in St. Kitts and she says it is her passion for Brimstone Hill and her love of reading, children and her Caribbean home that led her to create the Caribbean Adventure Series. We eagerly await the other books in the series.

I found this book at the airport when leaving after a wonderful time on St. Kitts. I immediately read it to my 6 year old daughter in the airport and she wanted me to read it to her Montessori class (1st-4th grade) at home. I did and it got great reviews! I added a bit of a geography lesson before reading the book and once I started reading, they were hooked on the history of it all. American kids get very little Caribbean history and this book made it fun and exciting for them!
