Description

A little girl gazelle leaps from page to page, asking hard questions about what is fair and right.She's sleek and fleet, and the poetic language lifts her up, up, higher and faster as she whirls through the bold eloquence of the book's illustrations, making colourful tracks, leaving her mark, finding her way, skimming and dancing through an unjust world. Part fable, part metaphor, Little Girl Gazelle is an extraordinarily beautiful picture book focused on discrimination and equality, presenting parents' subtle efforts to preparetheir black gazelle child for "a world of lions."
