Pamela Bennett, a professional horticulturalist, has completed her first book “Croakie and Rastaman”; a fun-filled recounting of the legendary stories of two adventurous buddies.

Describing her creative new work Bennett says, “This is a book intended to capture the humor and perspective of a little kid's point of view. Good trumps evil, love wins over hate. The story explores the simple wonders of the beauty of nature, good food, good music, the fun of dance, laughter and friendship.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Pamela Bennett’s colorful new work transports the reader into the peaceful stillness of the Jamaican evenings, while an old woman shares the exploits that Croakie and Rastaman have with the curious creepy crawling creatures of the forest that surround her home.

In an attempt to capture the humor and innocence of children, "Croakie and Rastaman" teaches children a little bit about the language, history, and folklore of the island of reggae. Teaching lessons about the importance of laughter and friendship, good triumphing over evil, and the simple wonders of the beauties in nature, Croakie and Rastaman is a fun book for children to read with their favorite adults.
