About this deal

Speaking during Black History Month, which runs in October in the UK, Tiana told the PA news agency: “I wanted to show that people who have my type of hair have challenges and sometimes find it hard to love their hair texture plus all the struggle of making it look beautiful. They love to dress and style their hair the same, but Tia's afro hair can be unruly and sometimes hurts to style and manage. Beautiful story of besties Tia and Aoki and how they surmounted challenges the class was facing ahead of picture day. At the age of five, I started having writing classes with my mum who edited and guided me through writing short stories.Now, if day by day, week after week and year after year what you’re doing is picking up books and seeing characters that don’t look like you, that will consciously or unconsciously affect your sense of wellbeing, your sense of identity and sense of what you believe you can aspire to achieve. You know, she’s not seen a book ever with a character with brown skin and dreadlocks, and the pleasure and pride on her face when she was saying it made me think, this is what I wanted to achieve through my books,” she added.

I’ve had a lot of comments on social media and also little girls all around the world have been showing pictures of my book saying that they love it and feel empowered to wear their afro hair to school, so that makes me really happy,” she added. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.Will her mum be able to give Tia the same hairstyle as her twin best friend Aaoki for 'picture day'? Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages. I enjoyed flipping though the book and my two beautiful daughters virtually saw themselves in the pages of this book.
