A powerfully moving and beautiful picture book about

the voyage of HMT Empire Windrush from national treasure,

Benjamin Zephaniah.

The hopes, dreams and bravery of the Windrush generation are expressed

in this vivid story through the real-life experiences of

Trinidadian musician, Mona Baptiste.

Written as a brand-new poem by Benjamin Zephaniah, the book is

beautifully illustrated by the extraordinary artist, Onyinye Iwu.

The arrival of the Windrush in 1948 is celebrated each

year on Windrush Day, 22 June

Benjamin recently won a BAFTA for his Sky Arts show, Life

& Rhymes, a showcase of some of Britain’s finest poets

This book is perfect for teaching young children about inclusivity

and diversity

Praise for Windrush Child:

adventure and want to learn more about the Windrush generation’s

experience. Essential reading’ Alex Wheatle
