“Alex and Alex have lots of things in common. They love playing, and dressing up and building things. They also are very different to one another; Alex is very messy and Alex is very tidy, Alex likes running and kicking a ball and Alex likes reading and dreaming”
Alex & Alex introduces the ideas of gender neutrality and tolerance of difference to young readers in a brilliant, uncomplicated but playful way. Neither character is identified as a boy or a girl and each one enjoys a mixture of activities traditionally labeled as “boy” or “girl” things. A fantastic story in its own right, with beautiful, bold illustrations, sure to raise some interesting discussions with your young folk.
