The beloved Julian of Jessica Love’s award-winning debut picture book returns in this beautiful book, also illustrated by Jessica herself, Julian at the Wedding.
In Julian at the Wedding we have another fantastically inclusive and celebratory book, full of sumptuous drawings of what looks like an incredible party celebrating the marriage of two women. Its follows Julian and his adventurous cousin Marisol as they roam around the party and get up to a little magical mischief.
In nearly every description of Jessica’s books the word joyful is there, and who doesn’t want to see joy inside a book, especially now!
We were delighted to have Jessica in the online programme this year in conversation with Hannah Lee, the author of My Hair, about why representation matters so much in children’s literature, which you can still watch back on our website video player.
