Reviews

Getting Glam at Gram's is a fabulous and heartfelt picture book that celebrates diversity in the most vibrant and colourful ways. The illustrations magically sparkle like glitter, interwoven with the beautiful text. This book left the biggest smile on my face and filled my heart with so much warmth. -Hasan Namir, author of The Name I Call Myself

A carefully crafted story that joins curiosities about gender expansiveness with the colourful potential of playing dress-up. A must-read for any young, playful mind. -Mark Reinhart, artist, educator, and queer activist

Getting Glam at Gram's is for every kid, like me, who loves to dress up in their grown-ups' clothes and put on shows in the basement. Filled with warmth, whimsical illustrations, and characters that seem like old friends, this enchanting book celebrates the joy of self-expression. We can all hope to be as glam as Gram! -Adam Francis Proulx, writer and puppeteer, The Fabulous Show with Fay and Fluffy

Getting Glam at Gram's is an exuberant celebration of fun, fashion, self-expression, and deep connections between different generations of family. Readers of all ages will take delight in the fabulous illustrations of Gram's incredible outfits and the kids who try them on. Yet there's something deeper here as well: Gram's loving response to a difficult moment reminds us that at the end of the day, it's not the clothes that matter but the way they make us feel and the way we offer care and joy to one another. This book will leave a sparkle in your eye and a smile in your heart. -Kai Cheng Thom, author of From the Stars in the Sky to the Fish in the Sea
