"I have a surprise . . . this class is going to do the Christmas play!"
Maya longs to be in Mr Kelly's play! She can already see herself on the stage, waving her arms around and saying her words so loudly everyone at the back can hear. Wonderful! But then Mr Kelly puts a large pink problem into her hands. What is she going to do?
She offers not to be Mary as she knows she's too brown to have a pink baby. The children bring in their dolls hoping one will suit Maya but the teacher solves the problem by knitting a brilliant, multi-coloured blanket for the baby.
A delightfully original story from an award-winning author.
