* *   Reviewed by Hilary Williamson

Julian spies three confident women on the subway with beautiful hair and 'swishy, shimmering mermaid gowns'. He decides he wants to be a mermaid, but what will his abuela (grandmother) think of that?

At home, while she takes a bath, Julian dresses as a mermaid. Will his abuela be angry? Well, no. She gives him some beads to match his new outfit and they head out together - to find, and join, a parade of mermaids.

Julian is a Mermaid is a sweet story of love, acceptance, and being true to who you really are.
