Chocolate Me!

Star scribe: Taye Diggs

Story: The young hero in actor Taye Diggs' debut children's book doesn't look like his friends -- his hair is curlier, his skin is darker and his nose is bigger. He's teased because of his looks, and asks his mom why he can't "be more like Timmy or Johnny or Mark with straight hair and a different nose?"
