An African Princess
An African Princess by Lyra Edmonds, illustrated by Anne Wilson (Candlewick, 2004). Lyra has always been told she is an African princess, even though princess with freckles who live on the tenth floor are rare. But when other kids doubt her, she begins to wonder herself. Will a trip visit to Taunte May, an African princess herself, clear up any confusion? A joyous celebration of self in engaging, lively illustrations. Features a biracial family. Ages 4-up.
