About You Need To Chill:
A delightful, endearing debut picture book by bestselling author and activist Juno Dawson in which a sister answers everyone’s questions about where’s her brother Bill.
When Bill can’t be found at school one day, the imaginations of the other children run wild. Is he on vacation? Is he lost in the park? Has he been eaten by a shark?! It’s up to Bill’s sister to explain…”You need to chill! My brother Bill is now my sister Lily.”
Juno Dawson’s debut picture book is a witty and fun-filled story about family, identity, and acceptance. Bold, joyful and warm-hearted, its message of love and inclusivity shines through on every page. Laura Hughes’ illustrations perfectly capture the positive theme of the story.
