Look Back! Synopsis

Look Back! celebrates the relationship between a grandmother and her grandson as she tells him about her Caribbean childhood adventures in the rainforest in search of a mysterious creature called Ti Bolom. Is Grannie's Ti Bolom real or just one of her stories?

Look Back! Press Reviews

This is a beautiful book with painstaking, lifelike illustrations that pull you into the story from the start - And I love the way the exploration collides here with a celebration of the rapport between a grandmother and her grandson: family, at its best, the ultimate tonic. The Observer

Atmosphere illustrations - A very special story about the power of the imagination. Parents in Touch

You feel as though you were there. And you could be. Maybe. Bookwitch

It is a great pleasure to recommend another title by the same award-winning author. I would hazard a guess that Look Back! will be just as popular with a slightly older readership at KS1 and early KS2. The School Librarian
