When a little boy paints his nails with his mum's nail polish, he discovers the most important thing of all: the magic of being his true self.
As the long Indian summer days stretch ahead of him, a young boy looks forward to his favourite time – painting-your-nails-time. He knows that when he dips his brush into those magical bottles of nail polish, he will find a colour to express his every mood and feeling.
Purple is the colour of magic and mystery. White is the colour of endless possibilities.
At times, his Papa frowns and says, “What have you done to your nails?” At other times, he says, “Why don’t you paint on paper instead?” But the little boy knows that painting his nails makes his hands look beautiful.
This colour-filled story celebrates the joy of finding out who you are and embracing the courage to be yourself.
“Rainbow Hands is a heartwarming, colourful delight, which offers a sense of nostalgia whilst also remaining current. It evokes childhood memories, hope that children are allowed to fulfill their dreams to be who they are, and above all, the fact that the boy is loved for being himself. Magic! “ – Khakan Qureshi BEM, Founder of Birmingham South Asians LGBT- Finding A Voice
“An uplifting, poetic story full of heart and hope.” - Ian Eagleton, children’s book author
