"Julián loves mermaids, so when he spies beautiful costumed mermaids on the subway, he can't wait to get home and transform himself too! When his abuela sees him, she takes Julián to join a glorious parade of fishtailed revelers in this inspired celebration of mermaids, love, and individuality."

— Meghan


While riding the subway home from the pool with his abuela one day, Juli n 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 Juli n 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 Juli n sees himself? Mesmerizing and full of heart, this jubilant story is a radiant celebration of individuality and self-love.
