Description - Big City Butter-Finger by Bob Cattell

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.
