Having dealt with the difficult subjects of birth in Mummy Laid an Egg and death in Drop Dead, Babette Cole now turns her attention to another taboo--divorce. Two of Everything puts a different perspective on the issue of divorce by focussing on what a divorce can bring--two of everything and happier parents.
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. (4 years and up) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Babette Cole is filled with zest for life: she lives in Dorset but travels extensively, to exotic parts of the world but also around Great Britain, visiting schools and meeting children. She is a great animal lover and keeps chickens, sheep, horses, dogs and cats which all find their way into her books.
