What Wesley Wore by Samuel Langley-Swain
All the weasels in Westburrow Wood are supposed to follow the rules and fit in. So, imagine their confusion when they meet Wesley, a wacky weasel, who is obsessed with clothes!
This is a heart-warming story of acceptance and inclusivity, as Wesley escapes the other weasels who plot and protest against his flamboyant nature, leaving the wood much less colourful. Written by Samuel Langley-Swain, LGBT dad of two and inspired by his youth growing up in a small Welsh village and being teased and ostracised due to his fashion and outwardly flamboyant nature. Children will love this rhyming read aloud story and Wesley’s sense of fun and colour, a great book exploring self-expression and acceptance, and encouraging young readers to embrace difference and develop empathy.
Written by Samuel Langley-Swain.
Illustrated by Ryan Sonderegger.
Dimensions: 245 x 245 mm
Owlet Press was founded by Samuel Langley-Swain in 2018, working with authors and illustrators with a shared passion – picture books which reflect the true diversity in children’s lives. Focusing on the challenges children face today and packaging these big issues into inclusive and accessible stories for small readers to digest and discuss with friends, families and schools. This indie children’s book publisher aims to change the world one book at a time, along with the best authors and illustrators to tell these stories.
Owlet Press have always published books that are 'incidentally inclusive' from day one and look to push this further with every title. With authors and illustrators from all walks of life - diversity is the driving ethos within this publisher. Owlet believe that it is key for young readers of colour to see children like them (and for white, non-disabled children to see children that don't always look like them) in books experiencing the joy and magic of playful, imaginative stories - a belief that we share at Babipur.
