Dyamonde Daniel may be new in town, but that doesn't stop her from making a place for herself in a jiffy. With her can-do attitude and awesome brain power she takes the whole neighborhood by storm.

Readers will fall in love with Dyamonde Daniel, the spirited star of a new series by Nikki Grimes. With her upbeat, take-charge attitude, Dyamonde is a character to cheer for - and the fun, accessible storytelling will hook kids from the first page.



Review Quotes




Dyamonde, a third grader, has wild-crazy hair, is skinnier than half a toothpick and is more than equal to the challenge of entering the crowded field of confident grade school heroines.--New York Times
