Ganesha has felt like an outsider throughout their life. Bullied at school for being fat, they don’t like how they look or who they are. Meeting a dazzling new friend who is fully and unapologetically himself changes his life!
In this empowering and affirming tale, Ganesha learns that being different, while often difficult, is not something to change or correct. In a world that encourages and enforces fitting in versus standing out, there is an inherent freedom in brave and authentic self-expression. Difference, Ganesha realizes, is actually a superpower! Whether this difference is of body size, gender identity/expression, disability, skin color, or any other form of human diversity, it is to be cherished and celebrated. Ganesha experiences the transformative power of self-acceptance as they learn that they matter, belong, and are truly gorgeous - exactly as they already are!
Difference is beautiful. Be beautifully different!
