The small kid with big problems returns in the seventh book of this beloved series!

and#160;

Itand#8217;s almost Christmas and school is going great for EllRay. Heand#8217;s and#147;blending inand#8221; just the way he likes. So when his father tells him he should be proud to be part of the African-American and#147;community,and#8221; EllRay isnand#8217;t so sure he wants to call attention to his differences. After all, heand#8217;s only one of two boys in his class with brown skin. And then, totally by accident, he insults the other boyand#151;one of his best friendsand#151;and all at once EllRayand#8217;s back to being the center of attention. And not exactly for good reasons.

and#160;

With Sally Warnerand#8217;s trademark sense of humor and spot-on dialogue, EllRay confronts questions about race and how it impacts both himself and everyone around him.

Synopsis:

Itand#8217;s December at Oak Glen Primary School and all EllRay can think about is Christmas. As far as heand#8217;s concerned, Christmas is the bestand#151;no school, presents, fun parties, and lots of cookies! But before EllRay can celebrate with his family, he must lead half the school in the Winter Wonderland assembly.

How tough can it be to memorize a few lines? Very tough, especially when EllRayand#8217;s soon-to-be ex-friend gives him a challenge to perform onstage. If he completes the challenge, heand#8217;ll save his friendship...but heand#8217;ll also ruin the assembly. EllRay is in for a not-so holly jolly time.and#160;
