Meet Shane! Check out Alliah's fiction picture book debut.  A Junior Library Guild Gold Selection. 


"An exuberant celebration of community that leaps off the page."

-Kirkus, Starred Review

"Agostini’s buoyant rhyming verse pulses with details, and Knight-Justice’s stylized illustrations layer bold patterns and textures... building a joyfully immersive portrait of neighborhood gatherings where “Swaying hips wine fast and slow./ Brown skin shines with black light’s glow.”

-Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“The vibrant beat of the rhyming text makes a splendid complement to the energetic art. Rich textures evocative of cutpaper collage and dynamic patterns give enthusiastic life to the more geometric backgrounds, and figures are always in movement, with poses swinging, swaying, and bopping.”
―The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“The picture book stresses the importance of community and selflessness, essential lessons for a picture book audience. Distinctive and vibrant collage-style illustrations depict a Black community of various skin tones and hair textures. This unique picture book’s celebration of Jamaican culture and community is a great addition to every ­library.” 

―School Library Journal
