Luci has never had a shadow. When she was a baby, no one noticed—but now they do, and they tease her mercilessly for it. Luci is devastated. Why can’t she be like everyone else? The reason, it turns out, is more joyfully magical than she ever could have imagined. Join beloved author/illustrator Lulu Delacre for a reading and demonstration of mono printing, the art process used for this gorgeous book.
Lulu Delacre, a three-time Pura Belpré Award honoree, has been writing and illustrating children’s books since 1980.
