Product Details


★ “This quietly powerful family story encourages children to use both voices and hands to advocate for change.” —Kirkus, starred review

“A great addition to any school’s collection, this book bridges a gap of understanding for ­others who may also have a quiet but powerful roar.” —School Library Journal

“Williamson’s vivid, expressive paintings that utilize primary and elementary colors in stunning, single-color backgrounds  . . . Nelson’s story, paired with Williamson’s illustrations, reminds the quieter personalities that they possess just as much strength and talent as their more vocal counterparts.” —Booklist

“Nelson and Williamson share the rich interior world of a character who shows readers that everyone has more to them than meets the eye . . . Williamson’s vibrant, colorful oil-paint and crayon illustrations use all the space on the pages to show how Lubaya is never fully alone, though she often tands apart . . . A lovely story by a thoughtful poet and artist.” —Horn Book
