John Agard's Windrush Child

By John Agard

Illustrated by Sophie Bass

A beautifully evocative story of a child's journey to England on board Empire Windrush, from an internationally celebrated, multi-award-winning poet and an extraordinary debut illustrator.

With one last hug, a child says goodbye to his grandmother and the shores of his Caribbean home, before stepping into an adventure across the ocean, to an unknown horizon and a sky full of hope. With stunning, thoughtful lyricism, internationally renowned poet, John Agard, recalls the journey made by thousands of West Indian children and families who travelled to Britain as part of the Windrush Generation between 1948 and 1971. Sophie Bass’s joyous and unique illustrations beautifully evoke the changing landscapes, and the uncertainty, bravery and hope of those who travel in search of home.
