Synopsis

A rising young star known across the Caribbean, Riccardo - Butter-Finger to his fans - visits London for the first time to sing in the London Caribbean Festival at the Royal Festival Hall in front of thousands. He's also hoping to see the West Indies play at Lords Cricket Ground, but most of all he hopes to find out about his father who left home for London years ago and with whom he has lost touch. Meanwhile back at home, his friends in the Calypso Cricket Club are facing their biggest challenge ever when they play in Trinidad for the Valentine Shield. Riccardo's time in the big city is even more exciting than he could imagine as he encounters stars of music and cricket and discovers the secret of his father's disappearance in this hugely entertaining and richly plotted story.

Bob Cattell has been a cricket fan all his life and a supporter of the England team through thick and thin. He also supports Yorkshire, especially for their fast bowlers from Fred Trueman to Tim Bresnan. He is the author of the bestselling Glory Gardens series about cricket, highly recommended by TestMatch Special, and the Strikers series about football, written with David Ross. He also wrote the Butter-Finger cricket books for Frances Lincoln, with John Agard: Butter-Finger, Shine on, Butter-Finger and Big City Butter Finger ("hugely entertaining" - Carousel). Bob describes his own criciketing abilities as 'a left-arm sprin bowler who surprises batters with the lack of spin'. He lives in Suffolk. John Agard is one of the most popular and highly-regarded poets writing in Britain today. His poem Half-Caste is on the GCSE syllabus and he performs at Poetry Live events throughout the country. His adult collection, We Brits, was shortlisted for the 2007 British Book Awards Decibel Writer of the Year Award. His book for teens, The Young Inferno, won the CLPE Poetry Prize Award in 2009, was nominated for both the Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Awards in 2010 and shortlisted for the 2010 UKLA Award. Goldilocks on CCTV, his poetry collection for 11 plus, inspired by fairy tales, is on the 2012 CLPE Award shortlist. John lives in Lewes, Sussex, with his wife the poet Grace Nichols.
