About the Author

Blue Jaryn is a university tutor, literacy and language student advisor, and freelance editor. They write to tell the kind of stories they wished they had growing up, and they hope their writing helps kids who experience negativity for being "different." Payden's journey was inspired by Blue's own exploration of gender and what pronouns fit best. They live in Melbourne, Australia with their partner and Jack Russell terrier, Nyla. This is their debut picture book.

Xochitl Cornejo is a motion graphics designer, 2D animator, and background painter. They are nonbinary and hope that readers can use their art to see and be comforted by the fact that there are many ways to exist in the world and present to others. Xochitl lives in Honolulu, Hawaii, where they like befriending the neighborhood cats. This is their debut picture book.

[A] wonderful celebration of gender diversity [...] The cartoonish illustrations, filled with comic details, make this relatable search story extra engaging. --Booklist, starred review

Gender exploration's a blast in this story about finding your 'just right' pronouns. --Kirkus Reviews

Jaryn's reassuring language shows that gender exploration doesn't have to be painful, instead emphasizing the 'skin-tingling, warm sense of wholeness' that self-discovery can bring. --Publishers Weekly

Whimsical illustrations help elucidate complex topics and make the story fun for readers as young as kindergarten. All elementary ages will enjoy this invitation to understand and embrace conversations around pronouns. --School Library Journal
