A beautiful book.
Julian sees some mermaids and wants to be one too.
When grandma sees this, she shows him where the other mermaids are, so community connections can be made.
This book has few words, and wonderful vibrant warm pictures.
Is Julian a transvestite or a transexual or, you know, a kid that likes to dress up as a mermaid? We probably don't need to know. What we DO need to know is that Julian will be accepted, loved, and supported by Grandma.
(Mermaids are a common symbol in trans kids.)
