I have to share this picture book that I just bought for my library. I’m blown away by how fat positive it is (even though I will admit, it’s also a *little* strange in the language, but it was translated from French…)

The title is My Great Big Mamma by Olivier Ka, illustrated by Luc Melanson.

It’s about a little boy who talks about how big, soft, comfortable and loving his mamma is and he is upset when she goes on a diet to please other people. 

I’m sure I’m breaking some copyright laws, but take a look at some of the pages!

imagesimply be marketing e-mail, “Tribal Grunge or Neon Bloom, what’s your style?,” may 2014

now, i don’t even dislike those garments, i am just like… completely baffled by the question.  which one is which?  can anyone in seattle tell me about the grunge tribes in the area?

p.s. “neon bloom” is the main character in my jem and the holograms/”ulysses” crossover fan fiction
p.p.s. i just looked at a glossary of fan fiction terms to make that joke.
p.p.p.s. "…;i was a member of the holograms yes when i put the white streak in my hair like the misfits girls used or shall I wear a pink yes and how rio kissed me under the starlight house and i thought well as well him as another and then i asked him with my synergy to ask again yes and then he asked me would i yes to say yes my hologram and first i put my arms around him yes and drew him down to me so he could feel my jemstar earrings all sparkly yes and his heart was going like mad and truly i said truly i will truly outrageous. “

Emphasis mine. Because Jem / Ulysses crossover fanfic.

All lost in a book.  Another image that will never make it into the mainstream media.

I love this
