Julian Is a Mermaid
by Jessica Love
A young boy is obsessed by mermaids. One day, on the train with Nana, he is enthralled when they are joined by a trio of women dressed as exotic sea creatures, complete with swishy tails and flicky hair. Back at Nana's, Julian starts to use the things around him to transform himself, bit by bit, into the most glorious and glamorous of mermaids. But it is Nana who provides the final finishing touch. A break out hit of a picture book, famously endorsed by RuPaul on Twitter. A celebration of individuality, creativity, freedom of expression and intergenerational love and empathy. Wonderful artwork which soaks the pages in colour and warmth. 'Love, love, love this! Fab illustrations and a simple message effectively put over. Nice to see an older woman so open to difference and enabling of the boy. It's so great!' (Deborah, Letterbox Library reviewer, author of Gender Diversity and Inclusion in Early Years Education). Age 3-6 Paperback 32pp
