Look Back! This picture book is a collaboration between Trish Cooke, award-winning author of 'So Much' and the acclaimed illustrator of 'Amazing Grace', Caroline Binch. The author draws on her Dominican heritage to recreate a Caribbean story-telling tradition which teases the listener with hints of the supernatural. Christopher is spell-bound by his grandmother's recollection from her childhood of a ghostly creature - Ti Bolom - that seemed to follow her through the rainforest whenever she took a gift of food to an elderly neighbour. Was Ti Bolom real or imaginary? Christopher decides to find out. The illustrations convey every nuance of facial expression and emotion and are perfectly matched to the atmosphere of this tale. (Perhaps most suitable for Years 2 or 3.)
