Red: Every Person’s Story

Michael Hall’s Red: A Crayon’s Story is a heart warming story about the journey of identity. The main character, Red, has a red wrapper, but is blue on the inside. This contradiction between inner self and outward appearance may be understood by children of any age. In particular it is a fitting visual representation of transgender identity, and I hope that it resonates with young readers. The colorful illustrations complement the playful depiction of Red’s experience, making it irresistible.
