Tall Tales of the Caribbean #1


Pin It

Cayman now has four superheroes doing good not only in the Cayman Islands but also throughout the Caribbean.  “The CP Superheroes of the Cayman Islands”, a new children’s book authored by Vinnette Mae Glidden makes its debut tomorrow when Book Nook hosts a book signing by the author. The signing takes place from 12am to 1 pm at the Galleria Plaza store.

The book tells the story of four children who discover their superpowers after their chamber machine washes up on the shores of the Caymanas Islands and they are rescued by two fishermen in a catboat. The fantasy takes young readers back to the days of yesteryear in Caymanas.

Ms. Glidden wrote the story after designing superhero costumes for her two grandsons for the Cayman National Cultural Foundation’s Fresh Cayman Couture Fashion Show. Her daughter Dr. Angella Glidden illustrated the book. Children can color the illustrations in their book. Making it a family project, the cover photographs are by her other daughter Chanda Glidden and her husband Charles Glidden was editor. Cayman National Cultural Foundation supported the book project with a grant.

Ms. Glidden is a Speech & Language Pathologist who has worked with children teaching them to speak, read and write.

“The CP Superheroes of the Cayman Islands” will be available throughout the Cayman Islands.
