BEN, THE BOY WHO PAINTS HIS NAILS
Ben is a quiet boy. He isn't like the other boys in the village. He doesn't own an action figure. He doesn't like to take part in football. He doesn't want to play with trucks or cars. However, the qualities that once made Ben feel alone will become the same very traits that ultimately unite his village. Ben is symbol for any underdog, for the tomboys and tom-girls of the classroom, and for the children who feel like they'd have to change in order to fit in.
