Visit https: / Jennie Poh was born in England and grew up in Malaysia (in the jungle). Pen and paper by her side at all times she loved drawing princesses and writing stories. At the age of ten she moved back to England and trained as a ballet dancer. After failing her art A-level Jennie decided the art world was definitely for her so she studied Fine Art at The Surrey Institute of Art & Design as well as Fashion Illustration at Central St.Martins. Illustrating is the reason she gets washed and dressed in the morning. She loves drawing quirky beautiful girly stuff and works with ink, watercolor, collage, origami paper, pencils, and usually ends up wanting to bash her computer. Jennie lives in Surrey, England.
"Armed with her own unique power phrase--'I'm Lulu Lovington, the ONE and only!'--Lulu feels empowered to handle any questions that come her way.... This book does more than simply tell a single story of biracial experience: it talks about navigating everyday racism in sensitive, but frank, ways. This affirmation is just as important as the power phrase.... All children will benefit from this pitch-perfect discussion of race, identity, complexity, and beauty." --Kirkus Reviews STARRED Review-- "Kirkus Reviews"
