Is this your teacher?
Is this your Aunty?
Amanda is fed up with these questions and wishes she looked more like her mummy and daddy, but maybe they are more alike than she realises.
This story about individuality, race, and family is brought to you by Book Dash, a local organisation that gathers creative volunteers to create new African storybooks that anyone can freely read, print, translate and distribute.
Created at Book Dash by Maimouna Jallow (writer), Alison Ziki (editor), Caroline Fassye (illustrator) and Charné Casey (designer).
