Shortlisted Little Rebels Award 2023

Bill's sister is tired. Tired of all of the silly questions her classmates are asking about her sibling: "Is he lost in the park?" "Was he eaten by a shark?" "Was he taken to Mars by aliens?" Frustrated by their hysteria, she keeps replying, "Hun, you need to chill". Until, finally, she gives them the answer they've been waiting for. Her sibling has transitioned but she is still just as clever, funny, cool and brill. The final double spread of the protagonist and her classmates holding peace-loving and kindness banners is a delight. As the cover states, this is 'A Story About Love'. "I love the message. I foresee lots of fun to be had with everyone repeating the title very loudly!" (Mark Jennett, Equalities Trainer/Consultant, LL reviewer). "Wow, I loved this! Love the illustrations. So much to see/to spot/to discuss. Fun throughout. So supportive for all without preaching" (Meryl, EY Consultant & Trainer, Letterbox Library reviewer). Includes a lovely incidental portrayal of a child with a prosthetic limb. Age 4-7, Paperback 27pp
