Julian sees 3 women, while riding the subway with his grandmother, and imagines they are mermaids. Later, while his grandmother is taking a bath, Julian transforms himself into a mermaid using items from his grandmother's home. Will his grandmother be mad or encourage his creative self-expression? Illustrations in the book are descriptive and "real."
Stunning illustrations and a beautiful inclusive sentiment to the story. I was surprised by the fact there are many pages without words on them where I suppose you have the opportunity to discussed the illustrations and ideas within the book, I was not prepared for this when I began to read this to my 3 year old daughter before bedtime and it interrupted the flow. I would suggest parent/carers look through the book before reading it to their child to get some ideas for discussion.
I love this book so much. The illustrations are amazing, original with a bit of a retro quality. Bright and beautiful images full of imagination. The story is beautiful and I always make sure I have copied in stock to give to kids I love. Everybody has received one of these books from me has been thrilled.
