Loved by our collective!

Yaaaaall, these middle grade graphic novels about magic and gender and family are perfect. Not only is the adorable protagonist's desire to learn sorcery an overt metaphor for being trans, but the "big bad" turns out to be transmisogyny (though, not in so many words because Molly is writing for kiddos). Full of wonderful, racially diverse characters, this book is written with a clear eye towards children who are queer or have queer friends and family. But seriously, I can't imagine who wouldn't freak out over these gems!
