While riding the subway home from the pool with his abuela one day, Julián 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 Julián 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 Julián sees himself? Mesmerizing and full of heart, Jessica Love’s author-illustrator debut is a jubilant picture of self-love and a radiant celebration of individuality.

Milo is on a long subway ride with his older sister. To pass the time, he studies the faces around him and makes pictures of their lives.

And then there’s the boy in the suit with the bright white sneakers; Milo imagines him arriving home to a castle with a drawbridge and a butler.

Alma is fascinated with the sea, although she does not know it. Her father, a passionate storyteller, takes her every night to meet fish, mermaids, algae and sailors. After much planning, Alma and her father travel to the coast. There they will share more than their excitement at seeing the sea. Inspired by the song “Llevarte al mar” by Honduran singer-songwriter Guillermo Anderson, Alma del Mar recreates the story of the millions of children who, due to the most varied circumstances, have not been able to leave their immediate surroundings; and that of her parents, who fight so that the little ones do not lose the opportunity to dream.
