Product description

Have you heard of Floella Benjamin? Today she’s one of Britain’s best-loved TV personalities. She’s acted in and presented shows like Chuggington and Play School. In between, she’s written books, sung in musicals and been a school governor. But life for Floella wasn’t always like this… Join the young Floella as she arrives in England from Trinidad in early 1960s. She’s ten, and she hasn’t seen her parents for fifteen months. At first, she’s full of joy at being reunited with her mother. But when she starts school, culture shock kicks in. London is cold and noisy, and the white children refuse to play with her. If she wants to survive, Floella will have to prove herself…

  • A fascinating memoir of immigrant life in 1960s Britain
  • Written by best-loved TV personality Floella Benjamin
  • Explains how Floella dealt with racism and rejection
  • Includes beautiful colour illustrations by Michael Frith

“Her story is honest, true and particularly relevant today.” The Times
