Children's Author Eno Edet

Despite what Science says, something can come from nothing.

And Eno Edet is living proof.

Born to Nigerian immigrants, Eno was raised in Georgia, adopted and nurtured by The Living Theatre in New York, and has settled in The Crescent City to unleash his brand of children’s books to and for the people of New Orleans.

Inspired by children’s authors such as: Hans Christian Andersen, The Brothers Grimm, and also by Nigerian and Southern folktales, and by his experiences living on the fringes of society, Eno’s mission is to redefine the importance of children’s literature.

Instead of taking the traditional publishing route, Eno makes the books himself. Gathering and using materials from where his stories originate from: The Streets.

Told from the perspective of the Have-not, Eno Edet’s children’s book collection makes up what is called the Library of the Ridiculous
