I love this book! The art is wonderful. Big, bold colour blocks in a stylized form show all manner of tough guys: superhero, racecar driver, wrestler, motorcycle dude, pirate, astronaut, ninja, etc. Add simple text and you have a powerful picture book. So many books for boys these days try to tell boys they don't need to be tough, that virility isn't important. This book just gets it soooo right! Yes, you are a tough guy and guess what? tough guys cry and it doesn't make them weak! Every one of these pictures shows the tough guy crying and all sorts of various different feelings they are having that made them cry and it is ok because feelings and crying don't affect your testosterone levels. So go ahead and be a "tough guy" and cry when you feel like it. The book ends with two "tough guys", a boy and his father who love each other, reading this book. Absolutely love the message! ( )
