"Indeed a book whose time has come, this is no pusillanimous
bibliotherapy; it is, rather, a joyful celebration that at the same
time firmly challenges the assumptions established and perpetuated
by the entire canon of children's picture books. Hurrah to
newcomers de Haan and Nijland and to the publisher for bringing
them to an American audience."
-Starred review, Kirkus Reviews
"Progressive . . . inclusive . . . exuberant collage-flecked
-San Francisco Chronicle
"A great book to teach young readers about same-sex couples."
-Philadelphia Gay News
"[A] modern tale of happily-ever-after." -NAPRA Review
About the Author
Writer and illustrator duo Linda de Haan and Stern Nijland met in art school and founded their studio in the dressing rooms of a former public swimming pool, The Papermill. (No, they don''t wear flippers and goggles to work and yes, that is a lifeguard chair.) In addition to being talented artists, Linda and Stern are expert sandcastle builders. This is their first picture book.
