The illustrations are a great part of what makes it so appealing to me. I like the visual references in the book: the London Eye and Big Ben depicted in the background illustrations, the dual African and Asian heritage of Olu, Olu being raised in a creative household (the opening page shows the potagonist's father in his art studio amidst books, etc.) It never belabors the point of ethnicity and culture but at the same time celebrates it.
I also see this as a nice companion to Faith Ringgold's classic, Tar Beach.
