“Dyamonde Daniel was a gem waiting to be discovered. Just ask her.” With these opening lines bestselling author Nikki Grimes introduces us to a new character kids are bound to love, a super smart third grader with wild-crazy hair and a can-do attitude.

The thing is, Dyamonde has just moved to a new school, and she's impatient for a best friend. Then Free shows up, and there's an even newer kid in class who might also need a friend. Unfortunately, Free doesn't want to be friends. In fact, he seems to be in a permanently bad mood. Dyamonde is determined to find out what's bothering him. And when Dyamonde Daniel decides to do something, it usually gets done!

A charming book about friendship and fitting in, delightfully read by the author, Make Way for Dyamond Daniel is surefire listening for the younger set.

Reviews:
"Right away, it’s obvious that author and narrator Nikki Grimes has created a special character. . . . Changing the timbre of her voice to differentiate the two children, Grimes allows listeners to experience their engaging personalities. Grimes dramatizes Dyamonde's perseverance and observant nature, making it fully believable when Free finally warms up to her."

"This series of chapter books for younger readers is off to a great start.  The characters are well-developed and the plot is entertaining. Kids will like Dyamonde and find her relatable.  Nikki Grimes does an excellent job capturing Dyamonde’s voice, both as author and narrator.  Her reading of her own work is flawless and lively. "
    — SoundCommentary January, 2011
 
"Dyamonde is a take-charge kind of girl who isn’t willing to take “no” for an answer. Over time, the two African-American children discover common threads in their lives and gradually become friends in Nikki Grimes’s beginning chapter book (Puffin, 2010), the first title in a projected series. Read by the author with gentle humor, this delightful book will find an audience with the Junie B. Jones and Clementine set."
    — School Library Journal January, 2010
 
Praise for the print version of This Title No Longer Available - Please Do Not Order:
"Here's hoping this series kick-off leads to many more stories about best friends Dyamonde and Free."
    — Kirkus Reviews
 
"Clean, direct prose and strong, clear characterizations make this an appealing early chapter book. A welcome addition to the steadily growing list of beginning chapter books with African American protagonists, this is a promising start for the Dyamonde Daniel series"
    — Booklist
