Bling Blaine

Throw Glitter, Not Shade

by Rob Sanders, Letizia Rizzo
A heartwarming picture book about the power of allies to lift others up . . . and the sparkling magic of glitter!
Blaine’s a boy who loves to shine . . . well actually, he loves to sparkle. Whether it's his uniform, his book bag, or even his baseball cap, Blaine’s all about the bling. But when his bling rubs some people the wrong way, and the bullying begins, Blaine—along with the entire school—starts to lose his shine. Can Blaine's friends bring back his glimmer and gleam by glittering up their own wardrobes? This delightful story proves that anyone can love bling, and that happiness comes when allies band together to throw glitter—not shade.
