Julián At The Wedding

“Julián at the Wedding is a beautiful children’s story that reminds us that everything is easier with a good friend by our side.” – Momma Braga


Julián and his abuela are going to a wedding. Better yet, Julián is in the wedding. Weddings have flowers and kissing and dancing and cake. And this wedding also has a new friend named Marisol.

It’s not long before Julián and Marisol set off for some magic and mischief of their own, and when things take an unexpected turn, the pair learns that everything is easier with a good friend by your side.

Jessica Love returns with a joyful story of friendship and individuality in this radiant follow-up to Julián Is A Mermaid.


Julián at the Wedding is a beautiful children’s story that embraces uniqueness, friendship and love. We truly enjoyed reading this book and Nikki loved how kind Julián is with his new friend Marisol. We also enjoyed the joy everyone was having in celebrating love at a wedding.

We got a sneak peek at the author’s interview on her book and we loved her answer of what she hopes the reader gets out of her book.

“It’s also a story about making a friend by sharing a feeling of complicité, about connecting in a moment of vulnerability. It is a story about the power of dress-up, and it’s a celebration of nature, love, and of course, dancing. I suppose my hope for the book is a simple one: that it will make people happy.” – Jessica Love

For this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give it 5 stars out of 5! If you would like to purchase this book, click here.
