Nadia loves fun facts. Here are a few about her:<br /><br />&bull; She collects bobbleheads -- she has 77 so far.<br />&bull; She moved from Egypt to America when she was six years old.<br />&bull; The hippo amulet she wears is ancient... as in it's literally from ancient Egypt.<br />&bull; She's going to win the contest to design a new exhibit at the local museum. Because how cool would that be?!<br /><br />(Okay, so that last one isn't a fact just yet, but Nadia has plans to make it one.)<br /><br />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.<br /><br />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?<br /><br />From <i>The Daily Show</i> comedian Bassem Youssef and author Catherine R. Daly comes a humorous and heartfelt story about prejudice, friendship, empathy, and courage.<br /><br />Includes sections of black-and-white comics as well as lively black-and-white illustrations throughout.
