A note from creator Nelly Thomas...

I am a comedian and an author.

I have two daughters. One loves fashion and design, the other loves karate and kicking stuff.

They are both bloody awesome.

One of my girls has a hard time of it.  I'm sure you can guess which one.

I wrote SOME GIRLS for my girls, who are very different but equally wonderful and later, SOME BOYS for all the boys who just want to be themselves.

The response to the books has been overwhelming.

I have been contacted by teachers, parents, carers and - most importantly - kids, to tell me how much they love the books and the messages of affirmation in them. 

My hope is that both these books are used in the crucial early years to encourage kids to accept themselves and others as they are, and to know that they shouldn't be limited by who other people think they should be.
