Una colección inspiradora de 100 hombres famosos y no tan famosos que hicieron del mundo un lugar mejor a través de la compasión, la generosidad y la confianza en sí mismos.

Los niños al crecer pueden ser todo lo que ellos deseen ser. Este libro llega en un momento oportuno para ampliar el diálogo sobre los roles de género y ofrecer a los niños un mensaje alternativo: la masculinidad es amplia y puede significar muchas cosas.
En Cuentos para niños que se atreven a ser diferentes no encontrarás historias sobre cómo matar dragones o salvar princesas. Su autor, Ben Brooks -con la ayuda de Quinton Wintor y sus llamativas ilustraciones a todo color- ofrece una reflexión diferente y novedosa para los jóvenes, que celebra a los introvertidos e innovadores, la sensibilidad y la resiliencia, la libre expresión y la individualidad.
Esta colección reúne las historias de 100 hombres famosos, y no tan famosos, del pasado y del presente: Frank Ocean, Salvador Dali, Beethoven, Barack Obama, Ai Weiwei, Lionel Messi, Jesse Owens y Jorge Muñoz, entre muchos otros héroes de todos los ámbitos de la vida. Cada uno de ellos, a su manera, es un rompedor de reglas y de estereotipos, e hicieron del mundo un lugar mejor a través de la compasión, la generosidad y la confianza en sí mismos.


Boys can be anything they want to be! This timely book joins and expands the gender-role conversation and gives middle-grade boys a welcome alternative message: that masculinity can mean many things.
In Stories for Boys Who Dare to Be Different, author Ben Brooks-with the help of Quinton Wintor's striking full-color illustrations-offers a welcome alternative narrative: one that celebrates introverts and innovators, sensitivity and resilience, individuality and expression. 

It's an accessible compilation of 100 famous and not-so-famous men from the past to the present day, every single one of them a rule-breaker and stereotype-smasher in his own way. Entries include Jamie Oliver, Salvador Dali, John Lennon, Lionel Messi, Nelson Mandela, Trevor Noah, Barack Obama, Ai Weiwei, Bill Gates, John Green, Mahatma Gandhi, and so many more-heroes from all walks of life and from all over the world.

A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye.
