Alles familie!

(Every which way families) Book not yet available in English


The world has changed in many ways, and families are changing too. The traditional “mummy, daddy, and child” model is now by no means the only type of family. Family relationships have changed too. The witty texts and illustrations present all sorts of family setups – traditional families, single-parent families, families with divorced parents, LGBTQ+ parents, half-brothers and half-sisters in abundance, and adopted children. A joyful, comical, lively book in which every reader will recognise their own family! [Source: publisher]


A book offering a frank presentation of all the types of families in today’s society, from traditional to blended families, same-sex parents, and so on. It is not just a manifesto for acceptance of all kinds of sexual orientation, but also a joyous portrait of blood ties and emotional bonds, rituals and lifestyles. A tender, comical reminder that families come in all shapes and sizes and that they all are constantly changing and reinventing themselves. [01/11/2017, La Revue des livres pour enfants.
