Most educators know a child (or teen), who cannot sit still in a desk and refuses to conform to the standardization of public education. Diana is the embodiment of this student.
Unfortunately, the adults surrounding Diana immediately assume there must be something wrong with her.
A benevolent psychologist intervenes just in time, however, and Diana’s body and soul are rescued.
The illustrations in this title are reminiscent of Hilary Knight and her beloved Eloise, but Diana certainly is her own special character.
There is limited text on each page, which perfectly suits this story. Some pages have no text at all, allowing the reader to interpret for themselves.
Readers of all ages have the opportunity to see their personalities reflected in Diana.
Thank you to Annick Press and NetGalley for the advance copy of this title.
