Introducing ‘The Magnificent Toby Plum’
Toby Plum wishes he could be just like everybody else but everything changes when a funny little creature appears at his window. When Toby goes on his magical adventure he learns that the world around us is full of magnificent differences. He learns to appreciate the things that make him unique and special and stops comparing himself to other people. After all, life would be pretty boring if we were all the same!
MagnificentlyU was set up by Deirdre Cowman and Deirdre Ryan to promote self-acceptance and positive body image and to support the work of Bodywhys, the national voluntary organisation supporting people affected by eating disorders in Ireland.

“I used to think that there was always something wrong with me and that I was different from everyone else, but then I realised when I read the book that everyone is different too and that’s a good thing” (Tara* aged 8)
