A debut picture book about loving your name, finding your voice, and standing up for yourself from the critically acclaimed illustrator of Bilal Cooks Daal and I Am Perfectly Designed.

Mirha is so excited for her first day of school! She can’t wait to learn, play, and make new friends. But when her classmates mispronounce her name, she goes home wondering if she should find a new one. Maybe then she’d be able to find a monogrammed keychain at the gas station or order a hot chocolate at the cafe more easily.

Mama helps Mirha to see how special her name is, and she returns to school the next day determined to help her classmates say it correctly—even if it takes a hundred tries.

ILLUSTRATOR ON THE RISE: Anoosha Syed is a well-connected illustator of many high profile projects, including contributing a comic to our very own The Last Kids on Earth: Thrilling Tales From the Treehouse, and she’s making the leap into author-illustrated stories. We have another untitled picture book signed up with her and we hope to make Penguin her home as her career takes off.

SOCIAL MEDIA SAVY: Anoosha has 74.1K followers on Instagram and 86.3K followers on Twitter, giving us huge audiences to tap into as we promote and market this book.

AVAILABLE IN TIME FOR BACK-TO-SCHOOL PROMOTIONS: With a July publication date, the book will be available for back-to-school round-ups and promotions, and has tremendous backlist potential.

ACCESSIBLE DISCUSSION OF MICROAGRESSIONS: While Anoosha never uses the term “microagression” in the story, Mirha’s experience at school when her classmates pronounce her name wrong, is an accessible example that can open dialogue for young readers.

Anoosha Syed is a Pakistani-Canadian illustrator based in Toronto. She has a passion for creating cute characters with an emphasis on diversity and inclusion, and has illustrated many best-loved books for children. She is the illustrator of Bilal Cooks Daal by Aisha Saeed. Bug Girl and Bug Girl: Fury on the Dance Floor, as well as I Am Perfectly Designed, written by Karamo Brown, and the Monster and Boy chapter book series, written by Hannah Barnaby.

When Anoosha isn’t drawing for work, she’s drawing for fun (she doesn’t really have any other hobbies).

"Affirming and empowering; a story that will resonate with many children and a lot of adults, too."
-Kirkus Reviews

"Syed’s book uses clarity in the dialogue, the emotions, and in the intent, featuring only well-meaning teachers and children who want to get it right. Her illustrated school scenes are so familiar while Mirha’s posture translates her every feeling, with or without the text. . . A great first-day story for breaking the ice." -School Library Journal
