From bestselling Canadian author Elise Gravel comes a book that celebrates our amazing bodies.

Through her trademark quirky monster characters, author Elise Gravel illustrates ways that bodies can be different. They have different shapes, different sizes, different colours, different hair, and can do different things. These differences make everybody’s bodies special, but all bodies should be respected. Your body is YOURS, so give it a hug . . . but only if you want to. This important message of body positivity will both empower and entertain. The best body is the one that belongs to you!

★“It’s My Body! is an exuberant, kid-friendly nonfiction picture-book primer on body positivity . . . Combining laughs with thoughtful lessons, this robust resource also offers tips on how to treat your body with kindness and keep it ‘HEALTHY AND HAPPY’ . . . With monster-sized aplomb and panache, Gravel delivers a message that can’t be heard enough: every body is worthy of love and respect.” — Quill & Quire, starred review

    ELISE GRAVEL is an award-winning author-illustrator from Quebec. She has won a Governor General's Award for Children's Illustration in French, and is well known for her original, wacky picture books and graphic novels. After completing her studies in graphic design, Elise found herself quickly swept up into the glamorous world of illustration.

She is inspired by social causes and likes projects that can handle a good dose of eccentricity.
