Comments for King & King & Family

King & King & Family: 01/17/12

 cover art (Link goes to Powells)King & King & Family by Linda de Haan is the sequel to King & King. Whilst on their honeymoon, the two kings wonder if they should have a family.

The artwork is the same over the top style as the first book. As it takes place in a jungle, for the most part, the colors are more saturated, making the whole effect more extreme. While I found the second book's artwork an improvement, I'm still not completely sold on it.

As oft-happens with couples, families sometimes just happen. The solution here, while presented in a cute and simplistic fashion is problematic. Upon opening their unusually heavy luggage at home, they find that a young girl from the jungle has followed them home and that's how the book ends.

I realize it's a children's book. I realize the basic moral of the story is that even same sex couples might want children. But there's not adequate follow through.

Three stars.
