Lulu is a Rhinoceros

Lulu is a Rhinoceros

Cute, well-illustrated picture book that explains why Lulu is a Rhinoceros.

Lulu looks like a bulldog to everyone but herself. She knows deep inside that she is a rhinoceros. To fix her lack of horn, Lulu tries on a banana peel and an upside-down ice cream cone. It is only when she meets a community that accepts her perception that she feels at home in her own skin.

It is the perfect little picture book for our gender-fluid times. Lulu is a Rhinoceros would be a good way to introduce the idea that the way you look may not match how you feel. While this is labeled a middle-school reader, it seems for younger children. It is recommended for families, like mine, that include transgender members or for children who might have their own gender dysphoria issues. 4 stars!

Thanks to the publisher, Wicked Cow Books, and NetGalley for an advanced copy.
