Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Every night, Bailey dreams about magical dresses: dresses made of crystals and rainbows, dresses made of flowers, dresses made of windows. . . . Unfortunately, when Bailey’s awake, no one wants to hear about these beautiful dreams. Quite the contrary: “You’re a BOY!” Mother and Father tell Bailey. “You shouldn’t be thinking about dresses at all.” Then Bailey meets Laurel, an older girl who is touched and inspired by Bailey’s imagination and courage. In friendship, the two of them begin making dresses together. And Bailey becomes the girl she always dreamed she’d be!

This gorgeous picture book—a modern fairy tale about becoming the person you feel you are inside—will delight people of all ages.

"In the tradition of Charlotte Zolotow's classic children's book, William's Doll, Marcus Ewert's 10,000 Dressesis a wonderful story about staying true to oneself, no matter what the cost. Three cheers for Bailey, whose creativity and artistic vision will inspire readers of all ages to celebrate exactly who they are."--Leslea Newman, author of Heather Has Two Mommiesand The Boy Who Cried Fabulous

Marcus Ewertco-created the hit animated series, Piki & Poko: Adventures in StarLand, currently being shown on MTV’s LOGO channel. He is writing a memoir about his time with Allen Ginsberg and William S. Burroughs. He lives in San Francisco.

Rex Ray, a renowned graphic designer and fine artist, has a new retrospective book, Rex Ray: Art + Design, and a gift line available from Chronicle Books.

Synopsis:

A modern fairy tale for people of all ages.

Synopsis:

The story of a transgender child based on the real-life experience of Jazz Jennings, who has become a spokesperson for transkids everywhere

"This is an essential tool for parents and teachers to share with children whether those kids identify as trans or not. I wish I had had a book like this when I was a kid struggling with gender identity questions. I found it deeply moving in its simplicity and honesty."—Laverne Cox (who plays Sophia in “Orange Is the New Black”)

From the time she was two years old, Jazz knew that she had a girl's brain in a boy's body. She loved pink and dressing up as a mermaid and didn't feel like herself in boys' clothing. This confused her family, until they took her to a doctor who said that Jazz was transgender and that she was born that way. Jazz's story is based on her real-life experience and she tells it in a simple, clear way that will be appreciated by picture book readers, their parents, and teachers.
