From the Publisher
"In a world where Black boys' stories are often tragedies, statistics, and stereotypes, this work surely reclaims ownership over the boldness, creativity, and wholeness they possess." —Booklist, starred review
“Some are humorous, some are poignant, but all are compelling reading... A unique, timely, and necessary read.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“A book that in addition to celebrating joy reminds readers that getting excited and caring—about people, about stuff—is cool and rewarding.” —The Bulletin
"Mbalia and the other authors tell the stories of young Black men with such vivid, expansive descriptions that all readers can experience the joy that radiates through the pages of this book."—Shelf Awareness

Luckily I also have children in my life who do fit the profile, so can share the joy with them. 9 to 12 year olds are too young to have an Amazon account, so won't be able to review Kwame Mbalia's fabulous story collection. On their behalf I'd like to say thank you to all the authors, poets and artists who have created such a positive, imaginative, beautiful book. And have introduced me to US ways of speaking, lots of it poetic, great use of words, creatively different to the UK. The language of magic and love is universal.
Most of all, 'Black Boy Joy' is inspiring. Don't give up, keep trying, keep believing and helping each other.
And laughter always helps!
