Trailer

Jiro has a fever and no desire for pancakes and syrup. His dad’s concern grows when the doctor diagnoses Jiro with an unnamed condition. What does the diagnosis really mean? With vibrancy and abstract colours Jon Frickey’s absorbing illustrations draw us into a world in which we are invited to embrace the unfamiliar.

Themes: friendship, family, embracing yourself
