Jamaican books With A Story About Amelaryn and Raja Bajoe

by Clair
(NY, USA)

QUESTION:



When I was young I had a book with a story about a little girl names: Amelaryn or Amelarin.
It was a story about someone lost in the snow at Christmas time.

Did you read this book?

There was also a reading book for what grade I do not remember, but the story is about a jackal who sat near a Watering Hole and wanted the other animals who drank there to honor him by reciting a poem that he told them.

But one animal (cant remember for sure if it was a lizard ot what other animal) defied him by saying the poem another way which angered him.. He said something like this:

"On a stone bespattered with mud with a dirty old shoe on his ear, sits a wicked jackal who calls himself Raja Bajoe" ... Thanks for your help.



ANSWER: by Wellesley December 1, 2010

Hi Clair,

This looks like a tough, one but I've learnt that if one is interested to know, there is another who probably knows. As usual, I am posting it on my blog and site so if anyone happens to know, they can post it by commenting below - or share a link.

We all say how successful it was when we posted the request for the poem about song of a blue mountain stream by Reginald M. Murray.

BTW, This question will also be posted on our fan page so so it will be interesting to see if anyone is familiar with these stories. The address to our fan page is http://facebook.com/myislandjamaica.

Best of luck Clair!
