Granny JJ lived in a house in Soesdyke and she loved solving mysteries which other people do not bother about. Granny JJ was Christian and she did not take any nonsense from thieves, bandits, and beggars. All the cases she solved had her special signature on it. In The Granny JJ Adventures: Guyana's Daily Detective Vol 3 by Joshua Cartwright and Glenda Cartwright, Granny JJ can be seen solving the case of the brazen Hassa King, the case of the colorful bandits, the wicked laughing Bais, and the trouble at the BBWGA (Big Beautiful Women of Guyana Association). Let's accompany this lady detective and see how she solves the unsolved mysteries in the towns and villages of Guyana with her skill and courage.
The Granny JJ Adventures: Guyana's Daily Detective Vol 3 has been written in everyday Guyanese Creole by Joshua Cartwright and Glenda Cartwright, and it has fun, laughter, mystery, and action that will entertain young readers, especially those who are from the Caribbean and Guyana. The illustrations at the beginning of the stories make Grandma JJ tangible to readers and will make them love her ways. The stories are all engaging and Granny's special thoughts after each story are interesting. The glossary at the beginning of the book will help readers understand the Guyanese words and enjoy the stories better. It is a good story for parents and tutors to use for storytelling and read-aloud sessions and will introduce children to the culture and language of a new place in an entertaining way. All the stories in this book are appealng and I enjoyed the case of the colorful bandits the most. Granny JJ's adventure series is fast-paced, humorous, and absorbing.
