Charlie loves his bright red purse, so why does everyone else have a problem with it?

Charlie loves the bright red purse that his grandmother let him have. One day, he decides to take it to school. First his father, then his friends, and even the crossing guard question him about his “strange” choice. After all, boys don’t carry purses. But Charlie isn’t deterred. Before long, his unselfconscious determination starts to affect those around him. His father puts on his favorite Hawaiian shirt to go to work, his friend Charlotte paints her face, and the crossing guard wears a pair of sparkly shoes. Thanks to Charlie, everyone around him realizes that it isn’t always necessary to conform to societal norms. It’s more important to be true to yourself.

With its humorous, energetic illustrations, this book is sure to entertain young readers. It can also be used to open a discussion on gender roles.

Belle DeMont is a writer and illustrator from Halifax, Nova Scotia. This is her first book. Sonja Wimmer is an award-winning German illustrator and storyteller from Munich.
