Summary

A picture book version of Coming to England, the biography of Baroness Floella Benjamin, focussing on her journey to England from Trinidad as a young girl.

Follow ten-year-old Floella as she and her family set sail from the Caribbean to a new life in London. Alone on a huge ship for two weeks, then tumbled into a cold and unfriendly London, coming to England wasn't at all what Floella had expected . . . What will her new school be like? Will she meet the Queen?

Filled with optimism and joy, yet deeply personal and relevant, young children will resonate with Floella's experiences of moving home and making friends. Alongside vibrant illustrations by Diane Ewen, this powerful story shows little people how courage and determination can always overcome adversity.

NOTE: Original hbk first published 1995; other formats up to 2017. This is a simplified picture book version.
