Now in Dragonfly: a lively, empowering story about Brenda's knotted-up, twisted, nappy hair and how it got to be that way! Told in the African-American "call and response" tradition, this story leaps off the page, along with vibrant illustrations by Joe Cepeda.

"The family's cross talk takes on the high-voltage spark and crackle of a gospel revival. The accompanying illustrations are deliriously silly and sly." --Parenting magazine

"Herron captures the free-for-all atmosphere of a Sunday get-together and the spontaneous, true-to-life quality of her writing will resonate with children and families who share Brenda's experiences."--Publishers Weekly
