“Why do you keep saying I’m a boy when I’m a girl?” Guthli asks her mother.

In that simple question lies all the bewilderment that children like Guthli feel, who don’t seem to others what they know they are. The gentle, bold story about gender identity tells it like it is, reality echoed in the flatness of the vibrant cutout illustrations — Guthli’s sparkle and sadness, her family’s confusion, the big question mark that hangs over them all. How will Guthli get wings to be herself, to fly?
