One of a Kind Like Me - Unico como yo
Laurin Mayeno, Blood Orange Press 2016
Danny is very clear about what costume he wants to wear to the school parade. He even drew a picture. He wants a princess costume with a purple dress with ruffles and a silver crown. It takes some doing and some imagination, but bit-by-bit his family helps him create the costume of his dreams. It's one of a kind - just like Danny! Bi-lingual - Spanish and English.
