Antwan Eady's picture book debut is a celebration of individuality, creativity and self-confidence. Nigel has his whole life ahead of him, but what will he make of himself? His dreams are grand, but his path forward feels full of doubt and societal norms that may get in his way. Gracey Zhang (Lala's Words) breathes beautiful life into Nigel with her gorgeous illustrations on each mural-esque spread.
When Nigel looks up at the moon, his future is bright. He imagines himself as…an astronaut, a dancer, a superhero, too!
Among the stars, he twirls. With pride, his chest swells. And his eyes, they glow. Nigel is the most brilliant body in the sky.
But it’s Career Week at school, and Nigel can’t find the courage to share his dreams. It’s easy to whisper them to the moon, but not to his classmates—especially when he already feels out of place.
