Feyi Fay and the Disappearance of Captain Nosa is a multicultural fantasy novel for children and preteens written by Simisayo Brownstone and illustrated by Teni and Tayo Creations LLC. Kuzoolies could be mistaken for human beings, that is, if you didn’t notice that they have beautifully colored wings -- and if you weren’t an adult. Adults, you see, can’t see Kuzoolies, nor can they contact them. For children, it’s an entirely different matter. Not only can children see Kuzoolies, they are aware of the magical Kuzoolie app on their cellphones and have access to an email address they can use whenever they need help. Kids can even concentrate very hard and simply wish for a Kuzooly to appear.
Simisayo Brownstone’s multicultural fantasy novel for children and preteens, Feyi Fay and the Disappearance of Captain Nosa, is an enthralling and magical fable about fairy-like creatures who can be summoned by children. As young readers learn about Alonso’s problem, they are also on board with him when he begins to think about other children who may have been upset by things he had done in the past few days. Becoming aware of one’s own impact on others is something kids often have some difficulties with. As Alonso and Feyi Fay conduct their investigation to find the missing toy, Alonso learns about respecting others’ property, having compassion for kids who feel different or are very quiet, and forgiveness. I was enchanted by Brownstone’s story and loved Teni and Tayo Creations' illustrations which work so well to make Feyi and Alonso come alive. This book is a grand selection for story time. It’s also a suitable primer for young readers. Feyi Fay and the Disappearance of Captain Nosa is most highly recommended.
