Synopsis

From Academy Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o comes a powerful, moving picture 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 picture book, Lupita Nyong'o creates a whimsical and heartwarming story to inspire children to see their own unique beauty.
