We are so excited to reveal the cover for a new title from Little Bee Books, Uncle Bobby’s Wedding, written by Sarah S. Brannen and illustrated by Lucia Soto. With its lush florals and vibrant palette, this is a cover to fall head over heels for.
The book — published in partnership with GLAAD — is a positive example of same-sex marriage and a celebration of family. When Chloe’s favorite uncle announces that he’s getting married, everyone is excited. Everyone except Chloe, that is. What if Uncle Bobby no longer has time for picnics, swimming, or flying kites? Chloe just wants to keep having fun with her favorite uncle, but she’s afraid everything is going to change.
What Chloe doesn’t realize is that instead of losing an uncle, she’s simply gaining another.
“Uncle Bobby’s Wedding is exactly the type of book I dreamed of acquiring when I became an editor,” said Senior Editor Brett Duquette, “It’s as beautiful as it is important.”
“I’m so excited for everyone to be introduced to Uncle Bobby’s Wedding!” added book designer Natalie Padberg Bartoo, “it means a lot to me to be able to work on this kind of story and share it with today’s children. Many thanks to Lucia, whose art really shines in this book.”
The book goes on sale May 5, 2020. And now, without further ado, the cover for Uncle Bobby’s Wedding!
