Short blurb: This gloriously illustrated children’s book illuminates contemporary mixed race life from the point of view of a child. A much needed volume, The Biracial Butterfly shows the beauty and magic of identity, and celebrates the lives of interracial families today.
About the author: Lennox Benson was born to a teacher and a doctor in Lagos, Nigeria and migrated to London, UK at the age of two.
Raised by his mother, he was gifted many books and became a keen reader. At school he excelled in art and creative writing, and secretly nurtured a dream to write a book of his own one day.
After working with a number of Black mentors in the performing and creative arts, Benson finally wrote The Biracial Butterfly as a response to the lack of positive role models for young mixed race people in fiction.
