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.
