When Harpreet’s mom gets a new job the family moves across the country and Harpreet shows his unhappiness and discomfort at a new school by wearing plain white turbans rather than his usual colourful ones.

This attractive picture book explores adjusting to a new environment and finding commonalities and friendship despite cultural differences.
