Description: The rich narrative and lush artwork intermingle in a book which evokes the sights, sounds, tastes and smells of an idyllic childhood on a Caribbean island. It is a remembrance of the sweetness of that life, but most of all it is a remembrance of Grandma, who cared for the children, and wept when she had to let them go back to their mother for a new life overseas.
Glazed pictorial boards are lightly worn, with a minor chip/pockmark at the base. There also appears to be a wax stain on the front, which can be easily removed with a little patience. Apart from some minor damp staining to the edge of one or two pages (contents remain unaffected), the pages are in superb condition for a 20-year-old children's book.
Lacks dust jacket.
Measures 26.5 cm × 21.5 cm (10.5″ × 8.5″). 4to. Unpaginated.
