Uncle Bobby's at

Can you guys tell I'm catching up on my Bloglines?

Check out this interview/review of Sarah Brannen's same-sex guinea-pig marriage tale, Uncle Bobby's Wedding, over at I haven't read this book yet, but I'm excited for it. Cuz, guinea pigs! Also, indications are that (as in Pija Lindenbaum's Mini Mia and Her Darling Uncle), the title character's sexuality is not the focus of drama and angst.
Unlike many older LGBT-themed children’s books, such as Heather Has Two Mommies, [the book] doesn’t focus on a child struggling against negative views of her family. . . . This leaves Brannen free to concentrate on her other themes, and opens up the book to a wider audience.
Plus, look at that gorgeous spread of a garden wedding about halfway down the first page (with, again, guinea pigs!)

Thanks to KT Horning over at Worth the Trip for the link.
