Funintun’s Christmas, 2nd edition. Verna Penn Moll. Tortola, BVI: Cedar Tree Press, 2020
$20.00 USC (Paperback) (New)
The original ‘Funintun’s Christmas‘ was published in 2015 and went out-of-print within nine months, leaving a few orders still unfilled. The need for a reprint became even more evident after devastating floods and storms destroyed so many libraries and books in the Virgin Islands in September 2017. The ceremony was held at the Breeze Way of the Government Administration Complex in Road Town, Tortola, on November 9, 2015.
Funintun’s Christmas embraces Virgin islands’ Christmas traditions and customs of the 1950s and before, as experienced in the family of a young girl. It seeks to expand the vocabulary of your readers by introducing new experiences; it aims to inspire the quest for deeper truths.
In this revised edition, the cover illustration has been replaced by the Inkberry, Virgin Islands traditional Christmas tree, which was popular in the 1950s and before. There is an addendum, containing reviews of the book, how the book got its name, and a background note on the Virgin Islands.
