    Mira doesn’t like her hair. It curls at the front. It curls at the back. It curls everywhere! She wants it to be straight and smooth, just like her Mama’s. But then something unpredictable happens...and Mira will never look at her Mama’s hair the same way again! A delightful celebration of natural hair and the courage it takes to be yourself.

    'Vibrant artwork that is full of detail, colourful clothing and striking Arabic architecture fills every page, creating a rich, warm backdrop to the rhythmic text. This delightful tale, featuring black and minority ethnic (BAME) characters, celebrates diversity and self-acceptance' – BookTrust

    'I loved this humorous but heart-warming story about embracing your natural beauty and being proud to be yourself' – Library Girl & Book Boy

    'For anyone who has ever wished for straighter, curlier, smoother, lighter, or darker hair, Mira’s story of discovery, self-acceptance, and love will be a refreshing glimpse of the natural beauty found in everyone’s unique features' – Foreword Reviews, STARRED
