A rainbow is born at night! A baby sea turtle has journeyed from a place beyond stars to Shell
Beach and seeks out his fmaily. In one night with the help of the most unusual guide he goes
through a series of adventures. The inspiration for this book came from one of the rarest sea
turtle beaches in the world, Shell Beach in Guyana. It is a unique story with a multi-cultural
fusion of concepts. It is the first picture book written using the ghazal, an Arabic and Indo-
Persian form of rhyming couplets, as a foundation. The main character, Manni, stems from
the Sanskrit word, Mani, from India which means “jewel or money” and the mongazers
which Manni meets are among the many spirits within the folklore of Guyana and the Carib-
bean, some of which are from the indigenous Arawak Indians.
