This fun and inspirational story was created as a way to give African-American girls a princess with whom they can identify. Coco, the book’s author said,  “I came up with Princess Leah because I wanted all African American girls to know that they could be a princess, too. Almost every princess you see or read about is white. I needed them to know that they are special and to be comfortable in their own skin.”

The book can be purchased from Amazon and at
