After the separation of their parents, Giulia and Carlo get used to their new life, but they are worried about their dad, because he is always alone and they are afraid that he’s hiding something. What is dad’s secret? But the answer to their fears will be a nice surprise that will bring happiness to the families of Giulia and Carlo.


This book succeeds in summarising the complex themes of divorce, homosexuality, and the new lives of parents in a few pages with simple and enjoyable illustrations. It also has the merit of presenting these themes as normal. The series “Piccola storia di una famiglia” (Small story of a family) contains books which deal with different forms of parenting. The publishing house Lo Stampatello was established with the specific aim to fill a gap in the Italian publishing market for children – the absence of representations of queer families.
