Grace loves to act out stories. Sometimes she plays the leading part, sometimes she is 'a cast of thousands.' When her school decides to perform Peter Pan , Grace is longing to play Peter, but her classmates say that Peter was a boy, and besides, he wasn't black... But Grace's Ma and Nana tell her she can be anything she wants if she puts her mind to it...

Great book. It's about Grace who wants to be Peter Pan in a play but her friends say she can't because she's a girl and black. But she does end up getting picked to be Peter Pan and plays the part brilliantly. Love the book.

This book was brilliant! Superb book for tackling gender stereotyping and racism. Grace loves to act out stories at home, she loves playi g all the different parts and has lots of fun doing it so is excited when she has the chance to play Peter Pan. But she is told she can't because she is a girl and because she is black. Her awesome grandmother shows her that neither of those things matter when it comes to doing something that she loves, and she can be who ever she wants in a play.

I love this book, it's a lovely story for little ones, but probably better for older children who can understand it more; that no matter what your race or gender, you can do anything you want to do, no matter what other people say. Grace loves stories and acting them out. Her school is doing the play Peter Pan, Grace really wants the leading role but  is told by by one of the children she can't be Peter Pan as she's not white or a boy. Grace is a lovely character who is really likeable, she is fun and very imaginative, There is a lot of detail in the illustrations. It is nice that Grace gets to play Peter Pan, and I am going to be buying my own copy of this for my children
