From Bassem Youssef, aka the Jon Stewart of the Arab World, and author Catherine R. Daly comes a hilarious and heartfelt story about prejudice, friendship, empathy, and courage.
Nadia loves fun facts. Here are a few about her:
• She collects bobbleheads -- she has 77 so far.
• She moved from Egypt to America when she was six years old.
• The hippo amulet she wears is ancient... as in it's literally from ancient Egypt.
• She's going to win the contest to design a new exhibit at the local museum. Because how cool would that be?!(Okay, so that last one isn't a fact just yet, but Nadia has plans to make it one.)
But then a new kid shows up and teases Nadia about her Egyptian heritage. It's totally unexpected, and totally throws her off her game. And something else happens that Nadia can't explain: Her amulet starts glowing! She soon discovers that the hippo is holding a helpful -- and hilarious -- secret. Can she use it to confront the new kid and win the contest?
