ABout the book

Hi potential reader of books. This is our book. It's mostly a book for kids. We're not saying it's illegal for adults to read this book, but it will probably be over their heads. So we suggest that if you are an adult who wants to read this book, that you read it with a kid who can (hopefully) explain it to you.

This is a book all about how to become a purple person. What is a purple person? WOWZA! Now, that's a great question. I mean, really great! You're already on your way to being purple, because purple people always ask really great questions. They also bring their communities together, and they speak up for what’s right. They are kind and hardworking, and they love to laugh (especially at Grandpa’s funny noises)!

Want to know the rest of the steps? Penny Purple is ready to lead you through all the 1,2,3s of becoming a purple person.

ABout the Authors

Kristen Bell is a mostly grown adult who spends much of her time pretending to be other people. She finds this pursuit oddly rewarding, mostly because of the free food. She is also an American actress and producer who has starred in such films as Frozen, Bad Moms, and Forgetting Sarah Marshall, as well as the television series The Good Place and Veronica Mars.

Benjamin Hart is a mostly grown adult who spends his time on a rock, floating through space. He is reminded of this almost daily by his neighbor Frank. He is also a multidisciplinary designer and creative director. He is currently a principal partner and the co-president of Brains on Fire, a creative agency that specializes in building communities and sparking social movements through the power of identity and narrative.
