Feather is a beautifully designed and illustrated New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Children's Book award winner.
How does a piano-loving featherweight of a girl respond when her brothers keep on making her do their chores? Well, since bullies need to be beaten, she takes up boxing, of course! Maybe, just maybe they'll even stop calling her Feather, if she can convince them on her own terms.
Readers will see Feather's determination and sense of justice as positive, transformative traits that help all of us on the road to becoming who we really are. And they will root for her as she learns to stand up to her brothers and proves that sometimes the best way to go after what you want is to leap into something new.
Feather will empower young children, girls and boys alike, to do something amazing! This picture book will help kids build confidence and self-esteem while discovering their own inner and outer strengths. The book jacket, which unfolds into a colorful wall poster, provides great added value as well as an inspiring reminder to reach for the stars and boldly be who you are.
