New York Timesbestseller

Boys can be anything they want to be! This timely book joins and expands the gender-role conversation and gives middle-grade boys a welcome alternative message: that masculinity can mean many things.
You won't find any stories of slaying dragons or saving princesses here. InStories for Boys Who Dare to Be Different,author Ben Brooks-with the help of Quinton Wintor's striking full-color illustrations-offers a welcome alternative narrative: one that celebrates introverts and innovators, sensitivity and resilience, individuality and expression.

It's an accessible compilation of 75 famous and not-so-famous men from the past to the present day, every single one of them a rule-breaker and stereotype-smasher in his own way. Entries include Frank Ocean, Salvador Dali, Beethoven, Barack Obama, Ai Weiwei, Jesse Owens, and so many more-heroes from all walks of life and from all over the world.
Ben Brooksis the author of several books, includingGrow Up,Lolito,Hurra, andStories for Boys Who Dare to Be Different.Quinton Winteris a British illustrator, artist, and colorist. He has worked for many clients including theGuardiannewspaper, Walker Books, Vertigo Comics, and the BBC.
