Misty Copeland

Taye Diggs’ story focuses on how a trio of white boys treat their erstwhile friend, whose skin is, as the title suggests, chocolate. Diggs proves himself adept both at crafting a nuanced resonant story about the hurt and pain even seemingly innocent remarks cause as well as demonstrating a mastery of language. The rhymes burst from the pages, as lively as the vibrant playful illustrations.
