Product description

Grace loves to act out stories. Now it’s the school play, and Grace knows exactly who she wants to be: Peter! But the other kids in her class say that’s impossible. Peter was a boy, and besides, he wasn’t black. Luckily, Grace’s Ma and Nana are on hand to remind her that she can be anything she wants to be, if she just puts her mind to it…

  • An inspiring classic tale of overcoming obstacles
  • The first book in a bestselling series about Grace
  • By Mary Hoffman, author of the Stravaganza books
  • Kids adore this book’s uplifting can-do message

“A groundbreaking book about race and gender when it was first published, and it remains an absolute standard – brilliantly told with superb artwork.” The Ultimate First Book Guide

    I have read this book over and over. This is a story about a mixed race girl who doesnt think she fits in at school. She absolutley loves acting and at home doesnt stop dressing up and using her imagination to make up little plays. Her grandma believes in her and tells her she can be whatever she wants to be and in the end grace does just that. Beautiful story.
