Written by SAMUEL NARH | Illustrated by JO LORING-FISHER


As the seasons turn, Maisie rides her bull in and out of Dada’s tall tales. Her Mama wears linen and plays the viola. Her Dada wears kente cloth and plays the marimba. They come from different places, but they hug her in the same way. And most of all, they love her just the same. A joyful celebration of a mixed-race family and the love that binds us all together.

'When my four year old granddaughter spotted it, she exclaimed "That’s me and my mummy and daddy"!' – The Letterpress Project

'We found a kindred spirit in Maisie. She will make a generation of mixed kids feel more visible' – The Tiger Tales

    Maisie is loved!

    Emotive illustrations show the cultural richness of having a mixed race family. The writing and imagery show how expressions of parental love are infused with personal meaning and this makes Maisie's scrapbook a celebration of a mixed heritage family and the unique expressions of love that are shared.
