      This book tells the story of a young boy, Sudan, who is picked on about his hair, which are dreadlocks. He is so stressed about what everyone is saying that he runs away.

      This story is about a boy named Sudan being teased about his dreadlocks. In the end, he comes to love the way he looks because Pearl Poet tells him "Just be your pretty self Sudan.

The illustration are the best part of the book in my opinion, although they are black and white.
