Grace loves stories, whether they’re from books, movies, or the kind her grandmother tells. Grace also loves to act out the stories. Sometimes she plays the leading part, sometimes she is ‘a cast of thousands.’ When her school decides to perform Peter Pan, Grace is longing to play Peter, but her classmates say that Peter was a boy, and besides, he wasn’t black… But Grace’s Ma and Nana tell her she can be anything she wants if she puts her mind to it.
Remarkable watercolor illustrations give full expression to Grace’s high-flying imagination.
