Although aimed at children or preteens, this small collection with its warm and evocative illustrations is sure to appeal to many adults. What particularly struck me about it is that each poem, within just a very few lines, creates a mood, whether it be eager anticipation (To Town), oppressive tropical heat (Midday), disappointment, (Eleven Years Old)or ecstasy (Rain). And the entire book, illustrations and poems together, conjures up an appealing scene: a Caribbean seaside town, dusty streets, laughing vendors and children on market day; and in the heat of day, perhaps a hammock hung from a couple of palm trees, idly swinging in the shade.
A delightful little book.
