Kamal Goes to Trinidad by Malcolm Frederick


Kamal Goes to Trinidad by Malcolm Frederick

I'm so excited! Today I'm flying to Trinidad and Tobago with my dad and sister Remi. On his first visit to the islands where his parents were born, Kamal learns steelpans and listens to calypso, looks round his father's old school, soaks up the sea and the wildlife - and gets a welcome from his grandparents that he'll never forget.


A must for the school library, essential reading for a geography topic on the West Indies and a visual feast for any child who wants to learn about the culture of another country. English 4-11
