I love this picture book, not only because it's one of the few which has a black protagonist (instead of being added into a picture as a token multiracial statement) but because Grace herself is such a great character, and her yearnings will be recognised by any child. She wants to play Peter Pan in the school play, but not only is she not a boy, but black. However, her strong-minded granny supports her, and Grace triumphs. Funny, ground-breaking and full of couragae and optimism, this lovely book should grace every child's shelf.
