Ju Ju Baby by Caroline Carver
ju ju baby is alive in the world and the world is alive in him. There are ghosts, saw-whet owls, sounds that come from the bodies that spirits are given to live in.
This book looks at how we grow in both body and spirit, how we bond with the natural environment, how we develop relationships.
Inventive, unusual and sparkling with life, it carries readers on a journey they will not forget.
"Fierce, vulnerable and open to his kinship with all the creatures that populate his world, an ancient new baby arrives, weighed down with the wrongs of his disposable ancestors. In bone -deep language, rich with images that score the skin of our complacency, we are shaken, moved and shamed by this small person and the disappearing landscape of his life."
