Other Ever Afters: New Queer Fairy Tales by Melanie Gillman

a quick, easy read. colouring & drawings are lovely.
but there's something odd to me (a Black person) about a white person drawing predominantly Black/brown-skinned characters, one of which wears a bonnet to bed??? like, yes, the character could, but also??? it feels weird-- a white person getting money for their book by drawing parts of the Black experience. no Black people were paid for sharing their experiences as Black folk to serve as material for the author/their book.
