    "A gem of a debut, Julián is a Mermaid is a beautifully illustrated celebration of individuality, love, and acceptance." - Seira Wilson, Amazon Editor

    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, Julián 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 Julián 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 Julián 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.

    What the Jury said:
    Fired by real life encounters and make-believe, a child plays at being a mermaid, making a costume from a curtain and the leaves of a house plant. Grandma lends a hand with a necklace and the two go off to a joyful sea-inspired parade. The jury appreciated the maturity of the graphic work from the front to the endpapers, the overall visual concept and artwork as well as the author’s narrative skill and expert pacing. The characters show delicate feelings and affection, the scenes have a balanced simplicity and economy of composition rendered in a mix of watercolours and gouache. An astonishingly accomplished work for a new creative.
