Alex and Alex



ISBN: 9781800660113 Category:

Ziggy Hanaor


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. After a trip to the museum goes a little bit awry, Alex and Alex have some cooling off time. But they always make up because Alex really really really really really really REALLY…. likes Alex!

This is a book for very young readers introducing ideas of gender neutrality and tolerance of difference. Neither character is identified as a boy or a girl, and the activities that each one enjoys is a mix of traditional ‘boy’ and ‘girl’ things. Charming, stripped back illustration illuminates the shared human experience and is also accessible to children ages 2 and up.
