This is good book to read to kids that are told they do not fit because of physical differences.

This magnificent epic tale from Mali, retold and illustrated with cut-paper by David W., embodies the spirit and culture of its people. The colorful illustrations depict life style, architecture, landscapes, and traditional clothes full of patterns. The art is also elegant and sophisticated like the empires of West Africa. Compositions are epic and dramatic like the story. The author made an extensive research at library of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African Art and paid a lot of attention to diverse cultural aspects consulting specialists in the subject like an associate professor of African Art from Indiana State University.
