Colorful hand drawn illustrations children's book about a town where every family have their own color.
The color is on them and their house, fences, etc.
One day a boy is born and he's multicolored like a rainbow and nobody knows what color to call him because they do not know what a rainbow is.
He comes up with a solution to the problem and then meets the girl who was born the same day as he. she has magic powers.
The storm that happens bring the whole town together...
This is a cute little children's book which extols the virtues of being different, and finding that someone special to share it with you. Rainbow Stick Boy is different from all the other people in his village because he's multiple colours, not only one. But there's something else special about him anyway.
This is a cute little picture book, but not a particularly unique one. There are plenty of others in this genre for kids ('The Rainbow Fish') that are better. I didn't get any requests for a reread - I'd say let your local library buy a copy, and borrow it for your children to read.
I liked the straws he used! That was the highlight of the book for me, and gave me something to laugh about. It was also popular with my young audience.
I'd suggest to the author that although the artwork is as good as other picture book I've read, the prose could use some work. Also the title made me think this was a picture book for teaching children about LGBT children and adults, but it wasn't at all.
I received this novel free, but this in no way influenced my review.
It's the best rating I've ever had in my life and that's that and it's the best in a good way.
