Perez Hilton has crossed into the world of children’s books with his fab first book, The Boy With Pink Hair. It’s the story of a boy born with a shock of uber fab pink hair, and how he grows to accept and love himself for who he truly is. Celebrating individuality and self-acceptance, the book was inspired by Hilton’s desire to promote equality in readers of ALL ages.
Says Hilton: “While I can identify in many ways with The Boy With Pink Hair, he represents so much more. This story is about every kid who’s ever had a dream, felt excluded, wanted to belong, and hoped that one day he could do what he loved and make a difference. With this book, that’s exactly what I feel I have the opportunity to do.”
We love the fact that Hilton chose a children’s book as his first foray into books. The message is sweet, and will encourage all kids to respect each other–and themselves. Now that’s the point of children’s literature ($17.99, amazon.com).
