New LGBTQ+ Picture Book LINUS

Linus is trying his very best to stay in line, but everyone in Linneopolis is bent out of shape because he isn’t square enough for them. When he’s sent to an overnight camp to straighten out and build some character, Linus decides he’s had enough. He’s going to run away and find shapes that aren’t so set in their ways. But what happens when he starts to miss home? Can he convince the population of Linneopolis to open up instead of shutting down? Or are they too boxed in to hear him out?

I love this children’s book because it has such a great message for young children.

Stuart’s debut picture book Linus is fundamentally a story about self-love. Despite the world around him telling him that he is wrong for being colorful, loud, and clumsy, Linus is confident and assured in what he likes and who he is, a lovely example for young ones still figuring out who they are.
