Review from Polyamory on Purpose

Jessica Burde of Polyamory on Purpose has written a fantastic review of Raf and the Robots. 
Click here to read the review!

Here's a snippet:

"When I first heard about Raf and the Robots I was hopeful but not excited. Writing children’s books isn’t easy (says the author who can’t manage it), and to do it without introducing the adults as fitting some pre-defined category is even more challenging. I was delightfully surprised when I read the review copy I received. Raf and the Robots is a well written and engaging story. Unlike many children’s stories about non-normative families, it doesn’t focus on Raf’s family. The story is about Raf’s need for someone to pay attention to his story, and how he learns that just because someone says “not now,” it doesn’t mean “not ever.” In this, Raf’s experience reflects what Dr. Eli Sheff found when interviewing children of poly families–family is just a part of Raf’s reality, not what his life is about."

Raf says hello to Paris!



This lovely bookstore in Paris, 'Le Pied de Biche', has just become the first bookstore in all of Europe to stock Raf and the Robots! 

Thank you Tiffany for making our day and for bringing our book to the children and families of Paris. 

If you are living or visiting in Paris, why not pop in and see the book for yourself? Or maybe even buy a copy for your family, for your nieces, your foster child, your metamour's stepson or your surrogate's children. :)
