Maisie’s Scrapbook

Lantana Publishing


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.

“A magical story about love, family and the wonders of a child’s imagination. “ – Maria Tumolo, The Tiger Tales blog

“A beautifully illustrated tale about a mixed race girl.” – Fariba Soetan, Mixed Up Mama blog
