Mermaid and Tigger

Julian Is a Mermaid

June 11, 2018

Julian is on his way home with his Nana when he spots some mermaids… or at least he thinks they’re mermaids. Just a mere glimpse of these joyous women and Julian’s imagination transforms him into a dazzling mermaid. At home, he puts on some make-up, styles his hair, and fashions himself a long mermaid tail. But what will Nana think when she sees him?

Written and illustrated by Jessica Love

Mermaid and Tigger

The beautifully illustrated picture storybook follows Julian as he rides the train home with his Nana. Spotting some mermaids it sparks his imagination and once home he decides to transform himself into one. Whilst his Nana takes a bath Julian finds items around the house to makeover himself into a mermaid. With plant stems in his hair, make-up and the net curtain from the window.

Wait to see what his Nana thinks when she sees his transformation.

Julian is a Mermaid celebrates self-confidence and diversity in a plethora of way. From gender stereotypes to family dynamics and body types. Bursting with individuality and acceptance.
