When Dominic visits Grandpa, Grandpa shows him how to grow sweetcorn in the garden the way he used to grow it back in Jamaica. While they work, Grandpa tells Dominic about his life in Jamaica, how he met Dominic’s grandma, and what happened when they came to Britain. When the sweetcorn is ready to harvest, Grandpa and Dominic trade it for apples from the next-door neighbor, just like Grandpa used to in the Caribbean. Lovely intergenerational story with rich, vibrant illustrations. ( )
