My knee-jerk reflex against sloppy moralizing probably kept me from picking up this book for so long. What a mistake! Grace is the kind of joyful, assertive little girl whose struggle with the illusive boundaries of race and gender never get in the way of her boundless imagination. I very much appreciate the subtleties of Hoffman's storytelling and the vivid artwork. I am already bracing myself for the day(s) when my own daughter will be confronted with prejudice and its history in America - hopefully a book like this can serve as a guide for her (and for me).
