Description

When Gregory wakes up on his first day in Tobago with his grandparents, his heart sinks. The food is strange and spicy, the sun too hot, his cousin Lennox is on another wave length, and there are none of the televisions, video games and other high-tech gadgets that a cool city boy takes for granted. But an encounter with friendly fishermen at the beach could be just what Gregory needs to help him feel more at home.
How Gregory adjusts to the strange culture, and learns to enjoy the lifestyle of the Caribbean is enchantingly told and illustrated by award-winning author Caroline Binch, illustrator of the bestselling Amazing Grace by Mary Hoffman. It illustrates the clash of cultures - even between generations of the same family - perfectly for young readers and Caroline Binch's illustrations bring the Caribbean vividly to life.
"Gregory Cool" was shortlisted for the prestigious Kate Greenaway medal, as well as regional awards.
