Controversial pop culture blogger Perez Hilton turns down the sass for his first children's book 'The Boy with Pink Hair.' Illustrated by BET and The Cartoon Network animator Jen Hill, the sweet story follows the journey of an imaginative lad who just happens to have been born with vibrantly colored hair.
Though the title of the book and Perez's reputation may lead you to think this is a story about a young gay boy, it isn't -- it simply aims at spreading acceptance of all people, regardless of hair color, race, gender, sexuality and other attributes. The heartwarming tale promotes individuality and tells young readers, "when you have a best friend who appreciates your uniqueness and parents who are loving and supportive, you can do just about anything," as the Amazon.com description explains.
'The Boy with Pink Hair' is definitely a change from Perez Hilton's usual material, but is a sincere and inspiring read for parents and children alike. I'd love to see this turn in to a series, but for now I'll enjoy this quirky and touching tale from the blogger.
