From bestselling author Elise Gravel comes a book that celebrates our amazing bodies.
Through her trademark quirky monster characters, author Elise Gravel illustrates ways that bodies can be different. They have different shapes, different sizes, different colours, different hair, and can do different things. These differences make everybody’s bodies special, but all bodies should be respected. Your body is YOURS, so give it a hug . . . but only if you want to.
This important message of body positivity will both empower and entertain. The best body is the one that belongs to you!
