Odette Elliott’s My Big Brother JJ is a winner

January 26, 2010

Odette Elliott’s fifth picture book “My Big Brother JJ”, was published by Tamarind in September 2009. This is a warm, family story aimed at children aged five to eight. It reflects the children’s close relationship and is beautifully illustrated by Patrice Aggs.

It is the half term holiday. Jasmine’s and JJ’s mother has to go to work. Teenager JJ is in charge. He thinks of lots of fun things for him and Jasmine to do together. On the last day they decide to make something for Mum. Will it work? See the 5-Star review on!! Odette’s first picture book, “Under Sammy’s Bed”, was published in 1989 and books in this series appeared on BBC children’s programmes. Odette’s is a multi-racial family and this is reflected in her writing. She has also written a collection of school stories called Nightingale News.
