Dominic Grows Sweetcorn This attractive picture book celebrates the relationship between a young boy and his grandfather as they spend time together on a gardening project to grow sweetcorn. Dominic gets to hear about his grandfather's early life in Jamaica, his meeting with Dominic's grandmother and their move to Britain as newly weds in search of work. At the end of summer when the crop is ready to harvest, they are able to exchange some sweetcorn for tomatoes grown by a neighbour - a trade that re-enacts fond memories of the sense of community and way of doing things in the Caribbean. The story concludes with a recipe for sweetcorn fritters.
