This nonfiction picture book chronicles and showcases the life of a talented albino boy called Andolo from the Mbesa community in anglophone Cameroon. The book advocates an end to discrimination against people living with albinism and, by extension, other disabilities, thus promoting inclusivity and the acceptance of difference. The book advances SDG 10 which seeks to reduce all forms of inequalities in and among countries and individuals. SDG 11 promotes safe, resilient and sustainable communities and SDG 16 promotes equal justice and seeks to eliminate violence and abuse with a special focus on violence against and abuse of children. Moreover, the book contributes towards building a reading culture among African kids, thereby contributing towards improved levels of literacy. By promoting understanding and appreciation of diversity and difference, the book promotes inclusivity in relevant settings such as the educational milieu. This aligns with SDG 4 which seeks to achieve quality education for all.
