Picture Book

When a baby boy is born, he is showered with gifts. But the one gift that causes the most consternation in the house is also his favourite. No matter how many ways his mother tries to hide it, baby Benjamin finds the bright pink suitcase his grandmother has bought him.

Years pass, and the bright pink suitcase travels through Benjamin’s life with him, giving him support and the strength to be different.

A celebration of diversity and being true to yourself.
