Although the whole issue of the end of a marriage is addressed in Babette Cole's characteristically zany way--only Babette would come up with the idea of a vicar "un-marrying" a couple-- important messages are conveyed in such a way that children are not only entertained, but also reassured. Sadly, divorce is a common occurrence which affects many children, this hilarious picture book addresses the issues and children's main concerns and, at the same time, is an entertaining read filled with Babette Cole's characteristic colourful and inventive illustrations.
