The Girl with the Brown Crayon


Write The First Customer Review

This simple, personal tale tells a story of self-discovery--through the thoughts and blossoming spirit of Reeny, a little girl with a fondness for the color brown and an astonishing sense of herself. Paley interweaves the themes of race, identity, gender, and the essential human needs to create and to belong.
