Stories for Boys Who Dare to be Different 2

by Ben Brooks, illustrated by Quinton Winter
£20.00   hardback  Quercus Publishing (2019)

Stories for Boys Who Dare to be Different 2 by Ben Brooks, illustrated by Quinton Winter Tom Daley, Oliver Sacks, the Jamaican Bobsled team, Amrou Al-Kadhi, Carlos Acosta... all dared to be different.
 
This is the follow-up to the much loved and hugely successful Stories for Boys Who Dare to be Different, the bestselling book that changed countless boys’ lives around the world and gave them the confidence to be themselves.
 
What have the footballer Kylian Mbappé, the philosopher Socrates and the singer Ed Sheeran all got in common? All three of them defied expectations – going against the grain and pursuing their dreams – despite a seemingly impossible barrage of obstacles and difficulties. Their stories are incredible, as are those of the tap-dancer Evan Ruggiero, the Pokémon creator Satoshi Tajiri, and the other inspirational boys who fill the pages of this extraordinary book.
 
It’s books like these that can make a huge difference to parents and their children’s lives. In this day and age, any publication that shows how we can triumph in the face of adversity and prejudice deserves to be read over and over again.
