Constantine Goes to Schoolby Nancy Rogers Yaeger, Bill Grace (Illustrator)
Readers will be captivated by the further adventures of Constantine, the endearing Toucan bird with the rainbow-colored beak. After escaping from a ship, Constantine finds himself on a small, beautiful island in the Caribbean Sea where he's welcomed by an old man who lives by himself and has no friends. Over the summer, children from the village visit the old man and play games with the Toucan, but once school starts their visits end.
The old man sees that Constantine is unhappy, that he misses the children, and decides to leave the Toucan at Neville's house in the village so the bird can be near his young friends. When Neville goes off to school, Constantine begins to explore his new surroundings and gets himself in a packet of trouble!
The Toucan's appearance causes a commotion and problems wherever he goes. What to do about Constantine? The answer will delight and amaze you! Nancy Rogers Yaeger, a former resident of Barbados, is a freelance writer, columnist and author of the novel The Waterfall. Bill Grace is a well-renowned Barbadian sculptor and artist.
