The Boy Who Cried Fabulous (Tricycle Press, March 2004 ISBN 1-58246-101-5) is a children's book by Leslea Newman and is illustrated by Peter Ferguson. Ostensibly, it is about a boy who keeps getting sidetracked when walking home or to school by all the "fabulous" things he sees, and how his parents come to appreciate their son's uniqueness.

However, it has a bit of subtext than can be interpreted as a gay allegory: the boy's parents admonish him to go "straight" to school, the word "fabulous" is of course stereotypically associated with gay men, and the story ends with the lesson of accepting each others' unique gifts.
