Disappointed and upset at her grandmotherâs hand-me-down costume, Malaika leaves the house, running into Ms. Chin, the tailor, who offers Malaika a bag of scrap fabric. With her grandmotherâs help, Malaika creates a patchwork rainbow peacock costume, and dances proudly in the parade.
A heartwarming story about family, community and the celebration of Carnival, Nadia Hohnâs warm and colloquial language and Irene Luxbacherâs vibrant collage-style illustrations make this a strikingly original picture book.
