Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The antithesis of the "Dick and Jane" coloring book, Girls Will be Boys Will be Girls is a funny and provocative deconstruction of traditional gender roles. 32 original illustrations with captions like "Calvin, baking is fun and all, but we can make a rad drum set out of these pots and bowls" and "Don't let gender box you in" offer light-hearted, fun ways to deconstruct gender for both children and adults. The coloring book form is a subversive and playful way to examine how perversive stereotypes about gender are in every aspect of our lives, especially the ones that are so ingrained we don't even notice. Girls Will be Boys Will be Girls pokes fun at the tired constraints of gender normativity, and makes it okay to step outside the lines.

Synopsis:

The parallel-universe version of the "Dick and Jane" coloring book, Girls Will Be Boys Will Be Girls is a comic deconstruction of traditional gender roles. This playful, provocative coloring book contains 32 original illustrations guaranteed to give even the most seasoned gender bender a good laugh. Captions like "Calvin, baking is fun and all, but we can make a rad drum set out of these pots and bowls" and "Don't let gender box you in" offer lighthearted, fun ways to rethink gender for both children and adults. Girls Will Be Boys Will Be Girls makes it OK to step outside the lines.
