A tender portrait of Afro-Caribbean family life, written by Curtis Ackie and illustrated by Constanza Goeppinger.

 Later is an illustrated children’s book inspired by a desire to fill shelves with more books featuring Black children. To do that, Ackie looked at his own Afro-Caribbean family – which also means the story features a stay-at-home dad, and a working mum! Goeppinger’s art is bright, colorful, and warm – a perfect pairing for Ackie’s story of a simple day at home, waiting for Mum to get home from work.
