Tales from the Caribbean
From the story of the princess who was too "Choosy-Choosy" and nearly ended up missing out on true love to the tale of Brer Anansi the spider who wanted it all and ended up with nothing, here is a collection of tales from all over the Caribbean.
They have been written by accomplished storyteller Trish Cooke (author of the classic picture book So Much, illustrated by Helen Oxenbury), whose parents travelled from Dominica to Bradford in the 1950s, bringing all the stories with them: a legacy for Trish to explore in later life.
This is a brilliant collection of stories, perfect for children to read to themselves, but best of all to read together and out loud. Some of the stories are famous but each one feels fresh with Trish’s brilliant retelling. A book to treasure.
