As the long Indian summer days stretch ahead of him, a young boy looks forward to his favourite time – painting-his-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.
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 heart-warming, colourful delight. It evokes childhood memories, hopes that children are allowed to fulfil 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)
Recommended for readers aged 3+
