My Princess Boy is a 2009 children’s by Cheryl Kilodavis and illustrated by Suzanne DeSimone. The story centers on a boy who likes “pretty things” and prefers to wear tiaras and “girly dresses.” The story informs readers about supporting children regardless of their expression. Despite the attention he receives regarding his appearance, the Princess Boy always has the love and support of his family throughout the entire story.

While being controversial and frequently challenged, scholars advocate the book for its ability to introduce the idea of diversity in gender expression simply in homes, classrooms, counseling offices, and public libraries.
