When Paloma goes to visit her family in Trinidad, she doesn’t feel that she fits in. So Tante Janet tells her the story of how her family came to the Caribbean, through the dark days of colonisation and slavery, to the emergence of a thriving, contemporary community.

"A bright, enticing picture book that sensitively explores the legacy of colonisation and the sustained telling of African stories" The Guardian

"Lawrence does a fantastic job of blending a fiction story with nonfiction facts for children, gently introducing lessons on colonialism, slavery, and cultural pride."
