Look Back!

by Trish Cooke, illustrated by Caroline Binch - £6.99  Papillote Press (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780957118720 | ISBN 10: 0957118724

Look Back! is a children’s picture book written by the great team of Trish Cooke (words) and Caroline Binch (illustrations), both of whom are distinguished contributors to children’s literature.
A magical tale set in the Caribbean and a wonderful evocation of the oral story-telling traditions of the region, it celebrates the relationship between a grandmother (from Dominica) and her grandson as she tells him about her childhood adventures in the rainforest and her encounters with the mysterious Ti Bolom.
The rhythms and repetitive patterns of Caribbean language are a rich component of the story – as is typical of Trish’s work – and the illustrations have that marvellous realism that is a hallmark of Caroline’s many successful books.
