Pansy Boy is a stunningly beautiful book that takes on the issue of bullying and lets a child feel proud of being different.

Out in the natural world, a boy is in love with its beauty. Birds in flight amaze him. School beckons at the end of summer.

He is fey, and bullies aren’t comfortable with that and they attack him. How can he defend

The boy takes strength from the flowers he loves. Where bullies pinned his life with their hate, he plants a pansy.

The power of his actions empowers his school to value what is delicate and different.

An imaginative autobiography brought to life in a rhyming poem with stunning graphics that children will love returning to again and again.

The book comes complete with a field guide to the flowers and birds contained in its pages.
