Sulwe a la peau noire comme le ciel de minuit. Elle est plus foncée que tous les autres membres de sa famille. Elle est aussi plus foncée que tout le monde à son école. Tout ce que Sulwe souhaite, c'est être belle et avoir le teint aussi clair que celui de ses parents. Mais un soir, une aventure magique dans le ciel lui ouvrira les yeux et changera tout...

Dans cet album magnifiquement illustré, l'actrice Lupita Nyong'o crée une histoire chaleureuse qui inspirera les enfants à apprécier la beauté sous toutes ses formes.

Sulwe has skin the colour of midnight. She is darker than everyone in her family. She is darker than anyone in her school. Sulwe just wants to be beautiful and bright, like her mother and sister. Then a magical journey in the night sky opens her eyes and changes everything. In this stunning debut picture book, actress Lupita Nyong'o creates a whimsical and heartwarming story to inspire children to see their own unique beauty.
