The Boy with Pink Hair

by

The Boy with Pink Hair Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

He was born that way-The Boy with Pink Hair. He had a cotton candy colored mop that no one had ever seen before . . . Life is not easy being pink. Adults stare at you, little children giggle behind your back and some kids are just mean. But when you have a best friend who appreciates your uniqueness and parents who are loving and supportive, you can do just about anything.

From blogger-extraordinaire, Perez Hilton, comes the story of a boy who is not afraid to be who he is and how his difference makes a difference.

Review:

"Celebrity blogger Hilton makes his debut with a book blurbed by, among others, Lady Gaga ('I wish, when I was young, I had a book as touching and beautiful as this to teach me about the journey of self-acceptance'), and brimming with admirable intentions. But a plea for understanding and tolerance, however necessary, does not a children's book make. Hilton writes as if he's working from a checklist imported from the Ideal World: the Boy's model parents love him unconditionally, 'didn't pester him to play games that he didn't like,' and encourage his cooking talents by building him a kitchen-equipped tree house. He has little faith in readers' ability to read between the lines ('he followed his own special dream and was happy to be just who he was'). He won't even let his hero have a simple triumph — the Boy not only saves Parents Day with his cooking, but also gets his creations on a restaurant menu. Hill, an animator also making her debut, fares better: her stylish, boldly brush-stroked vignettes exude a funny franticness, and her bigheaded, eager-eyed characters will feel instantly familiar. Ages 3 — 5. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
