Product description

Review

[R]ather than presenting an overt message about gender identity, the book provides a subtle and refreshing glimpse at a boy who simply likes to dress up. ― School Library Journal

Baldacchino doesn’t sugar-coat the teasing and isolation Morris endures. . . . Malenfant showcases Morris’s full emotional spectrum. ― Publishers Weekly

Morris is a complex character whose creativity and personality shine. . . . Sensitive and reassuring. ― Kirkus, STARRED REVIEW

[A] wonderfully moving and enriching picture book. Morris is a relateable character whom many readers will find both sympathetic and familiar. ― Quill & Quire, STARRED REVIEW

Unlike some more messagey titles on the subject, this one provides Morris with a personality beyond his dress-loving nature, making him enjoyable literary company. ― Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

First-time author Christine Baldacchino debunks all the shoulds and shouldn’ts of children’s behavior merely based on the number of x-chromosomes. . . . Veteran illustrator Isabelle Malenfant imbues young Morris with such expressiveness, from his curious joy to hurt silence to cruel rejection to hopeful triumph. ― BookDragon

Christine Baldacchino's story and Isabelle Malenfant's delightful illustrations show how being different is sometimes the bravest thing you can be. ― National Post

Baldacchino’s gentle story sensitively depicts gender nonconforming children, offering them reassurance and, one hopes, acceptance by introducing other children to the concept. ― Booklist
