Ebook for Transkids

f2

S. Bear Bergman (co-author of Gender Outlaws) and Suzy Malik have a great ebook for transkids. The book tackles issues like judgement and compassion in a way that’s accessible to youth (grades K – 3).  The ebook is available as a free download via iTunes.

The Adventures of Tulip, Birthday Wish Fairy follows title-character Tulip as he deals with the birthday wishes of all the nine-year-olds in North America. Somewhat reminiscent of the Disney film Prep & Landing, Adventures of Tulip, Birthday Wish Fairy gives an inside look into what exactly happens to all those wishes, what Wish Fairies eat for lunch, and what kinds of tools they’re issued. When a wish Tulip is unfamiliar with crosses his desk, from a child known as David who wishes to live as Daniela, he seeks the wise counsel of the Wish Fairy Captain and learns some new Wish Fairy Skills (while also introducing the concept of trans-identified children in a friendly, sympathetic way). Tulip gets in a little hot water, but ultimately his compassion and thoughtfulness win the day, while serving as a model for readers.


Editor’s Note: As of 1/26/13 this ebook is no longer free. The download price is now $5.99.
