|Georges' blended lesbian household includes an assortment of chickens |
(kept outdoors, unless injured) and five dogs (sharing the bed here).
Fans of poultry will appreciate the details in the panels that include chickens. I smiled to see a speech balloon containing a small heart and an exclamation point: a chicken's response to being fed.

Lots of black ink in the illustrations helps to set apart the later time frame from the earlier one.

Nicole's much older sister is also a lesbian.
Calling Dr. Laura is a heartfelt, funny and charming memoir.
