" Love love love Julián and his abuela! Promotes the importance of acceptance. Gorgeous illustrations. " said.

" A beautifully-illustrated picture book about a young person who gets to revel in a magical gender presentation, with the support of their well-dressed abuela. Words & pictures by someone I read as a white woman; here's an example (like Ezra Jack Keats) of white children's authors who represent children of color with reverence and care. An excellent pick for young people with imaginative streaks and families who want to explore the dynamism of gender together. " said.

" This was a wonderful stories with absolutely gorgeous artwork. " said.

" (5 Stars) This title beautifully and delicately handles the topic of a little boy who wants to dress up in an unconventional way. " said.

" Gorgeous children's book about a young boy who wants to be a mermaid and his Abuela who makes it happen. Stunning illustrations. Sweet simple story of love. " said.

" I was fortunate to receive this book early. I read it and put it aside. I needed time to process its beauty and message. I came back to it again and appreciated it even more. It is hard to put into words how important I think this book may be. " said.

" Love. Love. Love.Jess Love is the consummate artist - a talented storyteller, illustrator and actress. I had the rare pleasure of reading a final proof of this book, and could not have been any more blown away by her talent. Love has crafted a story that every child (and parent) should read; it celebrates individuality with a unique take that can only be found in NYC. Long story short, you should run out and buy this beautiful book for the child in your life! " said.

"I absolutely love this book. I'm crying. I have never read a picture book quite like this. The beauty, the femmeness, everyone in this book is so beautiful. I feel like this book is really important because not only does Julian's grandmother really support them in their beauty and femmeness, but while society provides so many negative images of WOC / FOC, this books is really focused on the beauty some of the characters really put into their looks in such a positive light. My heart was glowing the whole time I was reading this. I wish I had read this one when I was a little kid!" said.
