Editorial Reviews

Review

"This clever book is taking a truly 21st Century look at family life… In spite of managing to reflect the reality of life for all families, the book refrains from making value judgements. No family is depicted as better or worse than any other – just different."



'Useful, funny and truthful'

 'A wonderfully entertaining celebration of the huge diversity found within contemporary families.'

'Itâ??s a book packed with detail, humour and interest, reminding us that there is no such thing as â??normalâ?? or â??abnormalâ?? â?? we are all equal. ..In terms of diversity in its widest sense, books simply donâ??t get much more inclusive than this.'
