Le jour où papa s’est remarié

(The day daddy got married again) Book not yet available in English


Guillaume is upset because his daddy is getting married again. Marilou tells the teacher that he’s not marrying a lady, but… a man! Guillaume is worried. If he turns out gay like his daddy, how can he achieve his own plan to become a dad? Miradie says he can adopt a baby. Alima says maybe she will be gay too and they can have a baby together and share joint custody. All these bright ideas cheer Guillaume up, and the class can get on with their lesson!
