This updated edition of the iconic colouring book Girls Will Be Boys Will Be Girls Will Be… by Jacinta Bunnell contains all new illustrations and questions for contemplation. In this groundbreaking colouring book, you will meet girls who build drum sets and fix bikes, boys who bake and knit, and all manner of children along the gender spectrum. Children are tender, vulnerable, tough, zany, courageous, and gentle, no matter what their gender. This colouring book is for all the heroic handsome beauties of the world and for everyone who has ever coloured outside the lines—a reminder that we never need to compromise ourselves to fit someone else’s idea of who we ought to be.
Featuring illustrations by Giselle Potter, Nicole Georges, Kristine Virsis, Simi Stone, Jacinta Bunnell, Nicole Rodrigues, Richard Wentworth, and many more, this is the perfect book for the gender creative person in your life. The future is gender fabulous.
