  • Little Kemi knows that her great granny Addo was not a super hero because of any magical powers but because of her determination, courage and spirit. Kemi learns about the journey her great granny made to the United Kingdom many years before Kemi was born and the challenges she faced. It is a story inspired by the author's mother and the mothers of her peers. It is part biographical, about the women of the Windrush generation, many of whom travelled alone leaving family and friends behind. It celebrates female pioneers, whose unseen strength and power, created a life in a new country as many women still do today. There are pages of joy and some sadness throughout the book, giving the reader opportunities to explore their thoughts and feelings as well as our modern history. The vibrant illustrations are drawn from the author’s memories of a childhood trip to St Lucia, family photos and many oral stories of what it was like to first arrive in England. Woven into the story is a mystic trail which is a representation of the qualities we all inherit from our ancestors. This book is about a woman of the Windrush generation but hopes to reach out to all who have immigration as part of their family and cultural history.Dimensions ‏ : ‎ 21.59 x 0.2 x 27.94 cm
