Product description

Review

This book's themes can resonate with any child who feels excluded (or excludes others) and can also open up conversations about nonbinary gender identities. A relevant tale of love and acceptance that can find a home in any children's collection. -Kirkus Reviews

Miu Lan's tale is a unique, magical take on differences in gender identity and accepting diversity. -Resource Links

An exquisitely rendered picture book about gender and identity ... The illustrations, by Wai-Yant Li and Kai Yun Ching, are saturated with colour and sparkling with invention, and Thom's gentle, rhythmic text resonates like a wise old fairy tale that has been told and retold, and like the mother's song, passed down from one generation to the next. -Quill and Quire (STARRED REVIEW)

It's important for youngsters questioning their gender to see themselves in literature, and for other kids to see and more or less accept that fluidity. More generally, Mui Lan is always changing, and that sounds like the way all kids should be. -Montreal Review of Books
