Join Jacinta Bunnell as she teams up with Ami Joelle Glazer to bring you an adventure read aloud story about a spunky, non-binary protagonist named Harmon Jitney who finds joy in a magical purse, leading to an extraordinary, previously undiscovered, universe.
This book features LGBTQ characters seamlessly woven into a delightful, imaginative story, without being an overt "lesson book" about gender and sexuality. A More Graceful Shaboom is one of the first children's books ever written to feature a non-binary character who uses they and them pronouns. Follow Harmon Jitney and their two moms as they unlock the key to their own inner joy and understanding of community.
