Dominic Grows Sweetcorn

Mandy Ross Alison Bartlett

About the book

When Dominic visits Grandpa, they go into the garden together, and Grandpa shows Dominic how to grow sweetcorn, the way he used to grow it back in Jamaica. While they work, Grandpa tells Dominic about his life in Jamaica, and talks about how he met Dominic’ s grandma and what happened when they came to Britain. When the sweetcorn is ready to harvest, Grandpa and Dominic trade it for apples from the next-door neighbour, just like Grandpa used to in the Caribbean. And everyone ends up having a lovely feast together.
