By Catherine Hernandez (Text by (Art/Photo Books)), Syrus Marcus Ware (Illustrator)


Catherine Hernandez's debut novel Scarborough was shortlisted for a Lambda Literary Award, the Edmund White Award for Debut Fiction, and the Trillium Prize, Ontario's richest literary award. Her latest, I Promise, is a beautiful tribute to the resiliency of diverse families.

Featuring tender-hearted illustrations by renowned artist Syrus Marcus Ware, I Promise captures with love and honesty the intimate moments of parenting in all their messy glory -- from dealing with a kid who doesn't want to brush their teeth to looking under the bed for monsters to cuddling after a long day. This charming picture book showcases the many shapes, sizes, and colors that families come in, emphasizing that every queer family starts with the sacred promise to love a child.
