Synopsis: Zuri Jackson's best friend, Danitra Brown, wears only purple because she might be a princess, faces down bullies, rides her bike as if it had wings, and is definitely going to win the Nobel prize one day. In this spirited collection of poems, Grimes and Cooper have created two unforgettable little girls and a warm portrait of true friendship. Full color.
