Some of the concepts explored in the illustrations include gender non-conformity, debunking gender stereotypes (eg. insect collecting princesses and male ballet dancers), same sex attraction, and even cross-dressing. All of the topics are handled gently and playfully. You can choose, as a parent, how far you want to go with discussions in response to these illustrations but there’s nothing particularly provocative about them if you want to just let them be, too. My daughter, at age 7 and very fluent with these concepts, is old enough to pick up on every point being made and to find them all fascinating but they went right over the head of my three year old son until I deliberately explored some with him.
The illustrations are well designed pieces for colouring and are terribly sweet and whimsical in nature.''
