Summary

Brought to you by Puffin. 

The New York Times number one best seller.

From Academy Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o comes a powerful and moving book about colourism, self-esteem and learning that true beauty comes from within.

Sulwe's skin is the colour of midnight. She's darker than everyone in her family and everyone at school.

All she wants is to be beautiful and bright, like her mother and sister.

Then a magical journey through the night sky opens her eyes and changes everything.

In this stunning debut book, Lupita Nyong'o creates a whimsical and heartwarming story to inspire children to see their own unique beauty.
