Summary: Roland Humphrey is Wearing a WHAT? is the story of a little boy's quest to be his authentic self, dressed in pink and festooned with sparkles, in a world that frowns upon boys who like "girly" things. Roland sees girls at his school dress in a rainbow of hues and is confused by the "rules" limiting what boys can choose; he doesn't understand why girls can like sports and ballet, but for boys there's just one way. Written in verse, Roland Humphrey is Wearing WHAT? playfully raises important questions about gender norms, acceptance, and friendship.
