From a master storyteller comes this heartfelt tale of friendship . . . and seeing past our differences.

Tapir lives in the jungle.

Pig lives in the village.

But when they meet at the waterhole, they discover they are the same in so many ways.

They might even be brothers from a different mother!

Reviews

Against the wishes of their fathers, two very different animals become firm friends. A universal and appealing story of friendship, richly illustrated. Highly recommended.

Margaret Hamilton, Pinerolo

Brothers From A Different Mother is a fantastic contemporary text to explain to kids about diversity, differences and acceptance.
