Description

Lyra is told that she is an African princess, just like her aunts and cousins. But when she tells her school friends, they don't believe her. It is only when she flies to the vibrant Caribbean to visit her Taunte May that she discovers her own history. Then she can walk tall and say, 'I'm Lyra, I'm an African princess. Can you see?'show more

Fantastically vivid ... There is a lesson, about being proud of who you are, but there's such colour and spectacle and joy of life as well" Yorkshire Post "A bright and colourful picture book that teaches young children an important lesson" Daily Echoshow more
