Julian is a Mermaid

Publisher: Walker Books

Julian is out with his nana when he spots three women in lavish mermaid costumes and his imagination takes him beneath the waves to swim with a host of colourful fish.

Once home, he doesn’t want to let go of his dream so, when Nana leaves the room, he gets to work with a variety of soft furnishings until he becomes the most exotic mermaid ever. When Nana sees him, Julian is worried she might not be too happy but, in fact, Nana has a very special surprise up her sleeve.

Sparse text and wildly inventive, vibrant illustrations celebrate Julian’s individuality and creativity in a story of joy, acceptance and living your dreams.
