Sirandanns are much more than guessing games. This verbal contest of puzzles using the creole language is an eye-opener on our surroundings. They depict the world in an unusual way, lifting off its everyday mask and confounding it. Sirandanns thus reveal a fantasy world, bizarre, witty and always poetical. Beautifully illustrated by Gabrielle Wiehe, this book takes us through the strange, funny and poetic universe of some of the best known Mauritian sirandanns.
