Nail Polish Is Too for Boys!

Emma-Claire Sunday

Alex's world feels gray and drab...until he tries painting his nails and discovers a world of color he has never experienced before! This picture book's gorgeous illustrations progress from black and white to full color as Alex, his diverse group of friends, and ultimately his family all express themselves by doing things they love to do. The sweet and timely rhyming story challenges gender expectations around emotions and activities, and asks the reader to consider: what colors shine through when you're just being you

About the Author

Sunday, Emma-Claire: - Emma-Claire Sunday is an author and high school teacher who delights in bringing LGBTQ+ stories to the page. She's worked in outdoor education for the past decade, so she knows that summer camp is a magical place where campers and counselors can learn to express their true selves. Emma-Claire lives in New Jersey with her partner, Patrick, whom she met at camp.
O'Dwyer, Caitlin: - Caitlin O'Dwyer is an illustrator from New South Wales, Australia. As a child, she loved drawing from the moment she could pick up a pencil. She tirelessly copied artworks from her dad's collections of comics and would eventually create her own characters and scenarios filling countless sketchbooks. In high school she was gifted a drawing tablet and would log hours upon hours of digital illustration. Outside of her artwork, she loves music, especially Aussie bands. Caitlin is a dog person, whose too-smart-for-his-own-good Kelpie-x, named Ned, keeps her company in her home office.
