Julian Is A Mermaid
In an exuberant picture book, a glimpse of costumed mermaids leaves one boy flooded with wonder and ready to dazzle the world.
While riding the subway home from the pool with his abuela one day, Juli�n notices three women spectacularly dressed up. Their hair billows in brilliant hues, their dresses end in fishtails, and their joy fills the train car. When Juli�n gets home, daydreaming of the magic he�s seen, all he can think about is dressing up just like the ladies in his own fabulous mermaid costume: a butter-yellow curtain for his tail, the fronds of a potted fern for his headdress. But what will Abuela think about the mess he makes � and even more importantly, what will she think about how Juli�n sees himself? Mesmerizing and full of heart, Jessica Love�s author-illustrator debut is a jubilant picture of self-love and a radiant celebration of individuality.
