Out of an abundance of caution, due to the current global pandemic, Alomo Books is suspending operations for the next few weeks. We look forward to be back up and running soon. We truly appreciate your business and support. Stay well. Stay reading.
Sulwe is finally here! We are so thrilled to offer you Lupita Nyong'o and Vashti Harrison's stunning collaboration. Sulwe has skin the color of midnight. She is darker than everyone in her family. She is darker than anyone in her school. Sulwe just wants to be beautiful and bright, like her mother and sister. Then a magical journey in the night sky opens her eyes and changes everything. Nyong'os words and Harrison's gorgeous drawings come together to create a truly magical story book about finding beauty in oneself and countering colorism.
