About the Author
Richard and Lewis are a married couple living in London living with their two kids, aged six and three. They became a family through adoption, making them a two Dad family, which they have shared on their Two Dads in London blog (https://twodadsinlondon.com/) and Instagram. Seeing how much their children enjoy and learn through storytime inspired them to write a fun, imaginative picture book with an important message behind it: that every family is different and that is perfectly okay.
