Marisol McDonald Doesn't Match/ Marisol McDonald no combina (2012)

Author: Monica Brown [link to author's website]
Illustrator: Sara Palacios
Publisher: Children's Book Press
Number of pages: 32 pages

Marisol McDonald has flaming red hair and nut-brown skin. Polka dots and stripes are her favorite combination. She prefers peanut butter and jelly burritos in her lunch box. To Marisol, these seemingly mismatched things make perfect sense together. Other people wrinkle their nose in confusion at Marisol -- cant she just choose one or the other? Try as she might, in a world where everyone tries to put this biracial, Peruvian-Scottish-American girl into a box, Marisol McDonald doesn't match. And that's just fine with her.
