This five-page booklet was developed in Haitian Creole. It tells the story of two well-known characters, Bouki and Malis, from Haitian folklore, as they debate the value of starting to smoke. It is mostly dialogue, and has pictures by a Haitian artist. It also gives a list of facts about the health effects of smoking. This would be useful in an ESOL class with Haitian students, or as a patient handout.
