Review

a truly original rising star, Bookseller

From Two Hoots, and the fabulous author-illustrator Morag Hood, there’s the adorable aardvark story of Aalfred and Aalbert, whose different sleep cycles have doomed them never to meet, much to the frustration of a small avian matchmaker. Whether snoozing curled up in their burrows or following their passions of broccoli, cheese and flowers, these aardvarks, and their happy ending, make for ear-to-ear smiles. -- Imogen Russell Williams, Guardian Published On: 2019-01-26

A superbly comic though still subtle and understated gay love story appears in Morag Hood’s Aalfred and Aalbert (Two Hoots), the story of two star-crossed aardvarks who emerge from their burrows at fatally different times – one by night and one by day. [...] While some children might read Aalfred and Aalbert simply as a story of friendship, others will be delighted by the small, sweet smiles of the enormously endearing protagonists, finding and falling for each other at last., Times Literary Supplement

“It's a wonderful tale demonstrating the joy of friendship and love, told through the charming bright and bold illustrations and text that is suitable for early readers.”, The School Librarian

An adorable and somewhat unconventional love story that shows that eventually love triumphs and that good things comes to those who wait., ReadingZone

Full of charm and gentle fun in its depiction of two endearing aardvarks [...] this appealing appealing story should leave its young readers, and their families, with smiles on their faces, Books For Keeps

I think it’s my favourite so far. This treat is not to be missed; in fact you really shouldn’t miss any of Morag’s books, Red Reading Hub

this is a story lovingly created… and an endearing gift for anyone in need of a hug!, Lancashire Evening Post

A feel-good treat infused with Hood’s trademark playfulness and cheer, The Bookseller

A unique voice and wryly humorous illustrations will leave you smiling at this wonderful tale of aardvarks, broccoli, string and friendship., BookTrust's Great Books Guide 2019
