Mike’s voice is strong as he charges through his day. He whips past his dad and past his mom with a “Hi!” and “Bye!” When classmates comment that his parents don’t match, Mike hears his parents say, “We mixed you perfectly, and got you JUST RIGHT!” Confident in his own skin, he says to his classmates, “If you don’t get it, then you don’t get it.” The bold-action illustrations match Mike’s boldness in life. Written in loose rhyme, almost rapping, the story shows how race and the color of one’s skin means little in the scheme of things.
