Alex and Alex are two genderless friends, who enjoy various activities. But when their preferences differ, they become angry with each other. Alex likes to eat burgers, while Alex is a vegetarian. Can they resolve their differences and accept each other?
I’m not sure what the overall message is in this book. I like the positive message about accepting that your friends are different from you, and that everyone is allowed to like different things and eat different things. But I don’t like the weird genderless concept. If one Alex were a girl, and the other one was a boy, then it would be cute. But the book is very pointed in not assigning a gender to either one. So it’s just confusing and weird. The blurb on the back of the book even says “Alex is not a boy, and Alex is not a girl.” What does that even mean?! This story is just strange.
I liked the cute illustrations. The art work is bright and minimalistic. Each page is attractive and draws your attention!
