In this stirring and uplifting picture book, debut author Antwan Eady and artist Gracey Zhang tell the story of a young Black schoolboy with big dreams of moving past his fear of judgment to share his dreams with his class during career week.

When Nigel looks up at the moon, his future is bright. He imagines himself as…an astronaut,a dancer,a superhero, too!Among the stars, he twirls. With pride, his chest swells. And his eyes, they glow. Nigel is the most brilliant body in the sky.But it’s career week at school, and Nigel can’t find the courage to share his dreams. It’s easy to whisper them to the moon, but not to his classmates—especially when he already feels out of place. Debut author Antwan Eady and artist Gracey Zhang have crafted a poignant story about how representation and pride in where one comes from can bring a shining confidence to young dreamers everywhere.
