My Shadow is Pink is a beautifully written rhyming story that touches on the subjects of gender identity, self acceptance, equality and diversity.

Inspired by the author's own little boy, 'Shadow's' main character likes princesses, fairies and things 'not for boys'...he soon learns (through the support of his dad) that everyone has a shadow that they sometimes feel they need to hide. This is an important book for a new generation of children (and adults alike) which exemplifies the concepts of unconditional love, respect and positive parenting.

'When i got to the end of this story I thought: 'why has this book never existed before?'s just perfection!' - Dannii Minogue

Review quote

"Affirming" --Foreword Reviews, starred review "Stuart isn't just making up stories here--he's living the support he writes about. [His] take on the theme stands out for its focus on the relationship between the child and his dad and on societal ideas about masculinity." --Mombian, an LGBTQ parenting blog
