The longtime best friends team up in this short and fun comic guide that explains what pronouns are, why they matter, and how to use them.

FLAWLESS, perspectives from both someone who uses they/them pronouns and a cis person learning, filled with examples of both usage and necessity, plus really accessible!

This book lives up to the title. It's quick and easy. This book is perfect for anyone who would like to explain their pronouns to someone who might not quite get it. Even if you're well acquainted with the usage of they/them pronouns, this book is still an excellent read. I love the illustrations and I think it has a lot of personality while being informative.

Exactly what it says on the tin. Using a simplistic graphic format, authors Archie and Tristan go over the ins, outs, & allabouts of using nonbinary pronouns. With some helpful examples and personal experiences from Archie's nonbinary and Tristan's cisgender perspectives, this books is a solid starting point for either side of this issue. Because of its brevity and focus on just "They/Them" pronouns, though, there are few notable gaps that the authors admit need to be filled in through experience and further research on the reader's part. Still, for what it is, this book is a solid introduction to a fundamental problem for many people.

This light-hearted guide deals well with a serious subject matter of growing importance. The fun drawings and relationship between the two narrators make it a pleasant read, but it also provides readers with some clear guidelines about respecting the wishes of those around us and the attitude with which we should approach the needs of others. Most impactfully, it offers insight on why pronouns the language we use to refer to people are important. It's a helpful and meaningful book!

A great guide to explaining the importance of respecting individual people's pronouns. The perspective is shared between the non-binary and cisgender authors demonstrating healthy engagement of this topic on both sides. Great for anyone exploring their gender identity or someone who wants to know more about how create an inclusive environment for non-binary folks. Educational and easy to understand.

Hi, everyone should read this super quick comic about gender neutral pronouns! It's a swift and clear read, and will hopefully encourage growth and respect, and also make you smile.

I wasn't positive why the cis male talked so much; perhaps to identify with cis readers.

This really is a quick and easy intro to using they/them in everyday conversation, and why it's something we should do more often. Whether you are wanting to use these pronouns yourself or help others become more comfortable, this is a welcoming and non-intimidating way of doing so.

This is a great and short introduction. It has very personal narrators but also doesn't coddle the reader.

This really is a quick & easy guide! If you've been curious to learn more about gender neutral pronouns or have some questions, this little book is ready to help. Even if using they/them pronouns is completely new territory for you, the authors do a great job of making the concept accessible to everyone with the use of easy to understand language and helpful illustrations.

Perfect quote to describe the attitude of this book, "Nothing is as cool as being an empathetic and respectful person."
