Me and My Boots is the first title staring Bronte, a fun-loving character who inadvertently challenges gender stereotypes though her everyday adventures. In Me and My Boots, Bronte rejects the label bossy boots, and in introducing us to her family and friends, offers up alternative ways to describe assertive girls like herself.
Mum calls them my brave-girl boots. My bold-as-brass, adventure boots, I'm off to snare the dragon boots. I'll drag him home for tea. My teacher calls them bustling boots. My buckle-down-to-business boots. I'm the best at jobs boots. I'm busy as a bee.
