No one can pronounce Wakawakaloch’s name. Why couldn’t she be called something simple . . . like Gloop? That’s a name you can find on a T-shirt! But after a visit with her tribe’s elder, Wakawakaloch discovers what her name means, and how powerful names can be. Gloop may be easy to say, but the girl who helps her friends embrace differences and wear their names proudly?Her name is Wakawakaloch!

Chana Stiefel has spent her life searching for a T-shirt with her name on it. She also loves writing books for kids.

Mary Sullivan lives with her husband Carlos, her dogs Gemma and Nico and a cat named Cheaty. She spends her days writing, drawing and looking up at the big blue Texas sky.

Rep Pick: A book about how everyone mispronounces/spells your name?! Oh, I relate (how I longed to be a Jennifer!)! This is an adorable picture book about realizing that embracing your differences can be powerful. —Ali Hewitt

"Wakawakaloch's frustrations surrounding the mispronunciation of her name will resonate with many....This bombastic main character allows the story to shine." —Kirkus

Energetic, colorful cartoon illustrations depict peppy, bushy-pigtailed Wakawakaloch in a Flintstones’-like prehistoric setting with witty, often anachronistic details....The approach to subject will likely amuse while also encouraging respect and appreciation for the uniqueness of all names—and their proper pronunciations."—Booklist
