Granny Ting Ting, Paperback


Nine-year-old Michael is coming from London to Trinidad to visit his grandmother, who is recovering from a difficult operation, and his ten-year-old cousin, Shayla.

A fierce rivalry develops between the two children and everything becomes a competition - who can eat the hottest food, climb the tallest tree, tell the spookiest story.

Michael wins each time and Shayla confesses to her mum that she feels Michael's life is much more exciting than hers in Arouca.

She thought she was special, but everything she can do, Michael can do so much better.

Luckily Shayla's mum has a plan that will make Shayla realise her own good qualities, and for cheering up her poor old granny in the process...Granny Ting Ting is a contemporary story set in Trinidad.
