In thirteen brief, illustrated vignettes, young Harris gets into big and little adventures at home, at his best friend Ayana's house, and throughout his diverse city neighborhood.

"That's why they call permanent markers permanent," Harris' mother says as she surveys Harris and Ayana's handiwork in his bedroom.
