The Magic Callaloo


Brilliantly told and sumptuously illustrated, The Magic Callaloo is based on the fairy-tale "Rapunzel" and inspired by stories of enslaved Africans. By the celebrated author of So Much"Master storyteller Trish Cooke is in top form with this vibrant story of community, magic, love and family that's bursting with life and colour." Dapo AdeolaLong ago and far away, a magic callaloo plant grew in a village square. Whoever ate one of its leaves was granted a wish.

But a greedy selfish man wanted all the wishes for himself so he stole the callaloo. With only one leaf left, Mister and Missus, desperate for a child, pluck it to make their dream come true. But the greedy man wants everything and he kidnaps their beloved daughter, who will ultimately make the most remarkable escape.

Trish Cooke says, “The Magic Callaloo pays homage to my ancestors and the roads they walked to freedom.”
