Calvin a toujours su qu’il était un garçon, même si tout le monde le voit comme une fille. Un jour, Calvin prend son courage à deux mains et explique à ses parents que dans son coeur et dans sa tête, il est un garçon, pas une fille. Ses parents lui expliquent qu’il y a un mot pour désigner comment il se sent : transgenre. La famille de Calvin est aimante et le soutient, mais comment cela va-t-il se passer à l’école? Ses amis vont-ils l’aimer et le respecter autant que sa famille?

For as long as he could remember, Calvin knew he was a boy. But there was one problem: everyone saw him as a girl. One day, Calvin gets the courage to tell his parents how he’s feeling, and they give him a word to describe it: transgender. His family is just as loving and supportive as they were before, but what will it be like at school? Will Calvin’s friends make him feel as safe and respected as his family does?

Inspired by the authors’ own transgender child, Moi, Calvin is a beautiful story that explores topics such as gender, inclusion, and respect.

Original title: Calvin

KAYLA HARREN est titulaire d’un baccalauréat en beaux-arts et en illustration de la School of Visual Arts (SVA) de New York.

KAYLA HARREN graduated from the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York City with a BFA in Illustration. Her works include A Boy Like You (winner of the 2019 EUREKA Gold Award) and The Boy Who Grew a Forest (winner of the 2020 Crystal Kite Award.) She lives in Minnesota with her husband.

« C’est un livre joyeux qui fait le portrait d’un monde idéal, comme on l’aimerait tous. Les images réalistes, aux couleurs douces, de l’illustratrice Kayla Harren saisissent parfaitement ce monde ainsi que le personnage de Calvin, qui est mignon comme tout. Enfin, les auteurs écrivent selon leur expérience car, comme ils le révèlent dans une note à la fin du livre, ils ont eux-mêmes un enfant transgenre. » ~ Booklist  

« L’histoire de Calvin, celle d’une quête d’identité et de reconnaissance de la part des personnes qui l’entourent, est intemporelle, mais elle est encore plus pertinente aujourd’hui, alors que les droits des enfants transgenres sont menacés. L’histoire de Calvin est charmante et intéressante, et est accompagnée de magnifiques illustrations. C’est l’addition parfaite à toute bibliothèque familiale ou scolaire. » ~ Rebecca Kling, éducatrice et militante

“This is one happy book that reflects an idealized world, a way we all wish it could be, and that’s all right. Illustrator Harren’s softly colored, realistic pictures capture that world and Calvin’s look perfectly — he’s cute as the proverbial button. Finally, the coauthors write with gentle insight, for, as they share in an endnote, they have a trans child themselves.” ~ Booklist

“Calvin’s story — of finding his identity and seeking love and support from the people in his life — is timeless, but it’s especially important in this moment when the rights of trans youth are under attack. The story of Calvin is charming and engaging, with beautiful illustrations, and is the perfect addition to any family’s home or school’s library.” ~ Rebecca Kling, transgender educator and activist
