    Adorable comics anthology about children aged 5 to 12 of many different queer identities. I love this book and I wish I knew any children so that I could recommend it to them.

    This book tells stories that are really needed in today's world. It is all about accepting people for who they are and teaching that love, no matter what a person's sexual or gender orientation is, is all that matters. With charming art, the various creators tell their tales in a way that will help people of all ages know that they are not alone in the sometimes confusing society that tells us we are wrong if we don't fit into the standard images of what love is supposed to look like.

If you have children that are struggling with how they feel about who they are or who they like, this book can help them see that they are not alone and if you are an adult that doesn't necessarily understand why your child feels the way they feel, give this a read and see all of the various forms that love comes in that you may not have even known were possible. Bravo to the creators that made this book, it will help many!

    I loved all of the stories and art, but Playdate and Love Potion were by far my favorites. I can't wait to finally get my hard copies so I can donate them to the Library. I just wish something like this had been around when I was younger. I know stories like this could have been very beneficial for me and a lot of the kids I grew up with.

    Loved all of the different stories, and I'm sure kids of all ages who feel different will as well. Loved all of the different stories, and I'm sure kids of all ages who feel different will as well.

    very cute, but the tone and quality of the stories vary wildly. the first few were all very sweet and nice, then all of a sudden i got to one where the trans mc was having slurs thrown at her. and there are a couple stories that are autobiographical, which felt very out of place. i feel like there should have been a theme beyond "queer kids." maybe having all the stories be realistic fiction or all memoir or all fantasy would have made the anthology as a whole feel more cohesive. plus the fact t very cute, but the tone and quality of the stories vary wildly. the first few were all very sweet and nice, then all of a sudden i got to one where the trans mc was having slurs thrown at her. and there are a couple stories that are autobiographical, which felt very out of place. i feel like there should have been a theme beyond "queer kids." maybe having all the stories be realistic fiction or all memoir or all fantasy would have made the anthology as a whole feel more cohesive. plus the fact that they all seemed geared towards different ages. i don't know what child i would hand this to, because if they're too young, they won't understand some of the more complex stories, and if they're too old, they'll think some stories are babyish. also noticed a couple typos, one of them like eight pages in, which was not a great way to start. some of the text is noticeably pixelated, and there's a wide variety of fonts, including one that's just someone's handwriting, which is....not my favorite to read. anyway, the message and idea are very nice, but the execution could have been better.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Some of the short stories in this graphic novel collection are really wonderful and beautifully drawn. Others are mediocre - stilted writing, pedantic, and stiff, amateurish illustrations. It's too bad all of them are so short! There are 14 stories, half of them are 10-13 pages, the other half are 3-8 pages, in no particular order, without space in between each one, without title pages, and no table of contents. The back of the book calls itself "heartfelt" and that is definitely true. What's mo Some of the short stories in this graphic novel collection are really wonderful and beautifully drawn.

The back of the book calls itself "heartfelt" and that is definitely true. What's more, it will touch the hearts of the many children who might often read books in which they don't see themselves depicted. For young readers (ages 7 to 12) who happen upon this who weren't seeking it, I think it will also serve the purpose of letting them see what it feels like to be discovering your own gender and sexuality. But with such short stories, the appeal is likely to be much more suited to kids who already have that on their minds.

    5 stars for content -- loved the variety of comics and SOOOO happy to find more LGBTQ content for/and about younger readers (and not just "I have two moms" but actually about children's sexuality!). Most of the comics made me teary eyed because I am SO HAPPY THIS EXISTS. Only thinggggg, the very obvious spelling error on the back cover that says "fantanstic" was a bummerrrrrr. 5 stars for content -- loved the variety of comics and SOOOO happy to find more LGBTQ content for/and about younger readers (and not just "I have two moms" but actually about children's sexuality!).

    Basic but super cute, queer kids theme, lots of webcomic artists I like as well as some new names. Mix of stories about same-sex attraction, gender identity, and adjacent themes.

    This is another one of those books I kickstartered, and I remain deeply proud of being part of making this book possible. These are all glorious stories about LGBT people, from every walk of life, race, religion, gender, sexuality, everything. My heart aches and cheers with every single story and I think everyone everywhere should read this one, too.

    A truly gorgeous book that brought me joy. Full color, beautiful artwork, and wonderful stories. If only I'd had something like this when I was growing up as a confused young girl who was (and still is) attracted to both boys and girls, I think it might have made my life easier.

    A collection of LGBTQ stories for kids and teens. Some are higher quality than others, but they all have a positive message for questioning kids.

    The book definitely has a certain "self-published" air to it (the font, layout, typos, etc.) but it is full of absolutely sweet stories. Very heartwarming; I wish I had it to read as a young kid!
