‘Reuben and Manni’s story resonated with me more than anything I’ve ever read. The love between siblings where one has a LD is ferocious but also has complexities which are so brilliantly articulated in Brother. Do. You.Love. Me. This is a story of our times so beautifully told and illustrated by Reubs and Manni. Deeply touching and a joy to read.’
Jo Whiley, BBC

Not yet...I heard about this book before Christmas. Sounds heartbreaking.

I heard the two brothers being interviewed on The World Service overnight a few weeks ago.

It was absolutely beautiful and so emotional.

It actually reminded me of some of the things that my husband and I went through during the Covid years, when my husband was very ill, both physically and mentally.
It seemed to last longer for us than many.

I will see if I can find a link to the program.
It is called Outlook.

Here it is!
I can’t recommend it highly enough.
In fact, Outlook is an amazing series. Extraordinary people telling extraordinary stories.
The Michael Rosen one is really good
