Amazing Grace (1991)

Written by Mary Hoffman

Illustrated by Caroline Binch

Grace loves stories, whether they're from books, movies, or the kind her grandmother tells. When Grace hears that her class is putting on a production of "Peter Pan" she immediately decides she wants to play Peter. Some of her classmates tell her this is impossible, not only because she is a girl but also because she is black. 

With the encouragement of her parents and grandmother, Grace prepares for her audition. Will she win the role? Remarkable watercolor illustrations give full expression to Grace's high-flying imagination. This book is recommended for children ages 4 and up. (Copyright © Dial Books/Penguin.
