Perfectly Norman

Publisher: Bloomsbury

Review

Norman has always been normal, perfectly normal… So he is very surprised to have wings suddenly one day!

He has the most fun ever trying them out high in the sky and flying with the birds, until he has to go indoors for dinner. What will his parents think? What will everyone else?

Normal feels the safest plan to hide his magnificent wings is with a big duffel coat, but hiding the wings that make him different proves tricky and upsetting. Can Norman ever truly be himself?

With beautiful and fitting illustrations of Norman standing out in the crowd with his multicoloured wings and his yellow coat against a dull grey backdrop, this is a sweet and truly uplifting story that celebrates diversity in a subtle but unique way, and inspires children to dare to be different and have the courage to stand out.
