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, Juliên 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 Juliên gets home, daydreaming of the magic he_ã_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 _ã” and even more importantly, what will she think about how Juliên sees himself? Mesmerizing and full of heart, Jessica Love_ã_s author-illustrator debut is a jubilant picture of self-love and a radiant celebration of individuality.
