Product Description


‘This book not only deals with an important issue in an understanding and perceptive way, it's also a jolly good read. . . One of the best, and funniest, I have seen dealing with this subject.’

(An Awful Big Blog Adventure)

This is a strong, easily understood story, with lovable characters who make plain the sadness while emphasising the positive aspects of two homes.

(Healthy Books)

 'This whimsical picture book offers a sensitive approach to separation with a loving message and a happy ending.

(Green Parent)

'Tenderly told in rhyme, this tale about parental separation takes a difficult subject and presents it sensitively for a very young audience reassuring children that no matter where they live, both parents love them and it’s their parents not they who are responsible for the split.'

(Books for Keeps)

 ‘ This is a really clever idea.’


'This sensitive and friendly story will strengthen and reassure any child faced with such changes in their life.  Good that it’s here'


‘This will be a reassuring book for young children experiencing family break-up, and enjoyable and enlightening for those lucky enough not to have been through this trauma.’

(School Librarian)

'Gentle, sensitive… a bouncy rhyme and bright, expressive illustrations keep the mood light.'

(Daily Mail)

'A perceptive and understanding book, born out of personal experience and a reassuring way to explain a difficult situation to very young children. The delicate illustrations are sheer delight.'

(Parents in Touch)

Format: Paperback
A very sweet and helpful book to explain to children why parents separate. Ultimately positive whilst still acknowledging the hurt feelings involved.
