We do not count for butter, a young inclusive publishing house, wants to tell extraordinary stories in homopar families



Caroline Fournier and her partner Elsa Kedadouche sought to read their daughter books in which homosexual parenting was not the central subject, but the backdrop for extraordinary stories.

To trivialize the cocoons with two dads, two mothers, draw racialized families very little present in children's literature, the love between two girls, the transgender, neuro-atypical children (autistic…).

“We only found books where homoparentality is the central issue.

As we are never better served than by ourselves, we have created our own publishing house, and the welcome from booksellers has been fantastic ”, rejoices Caroline Fournier, also author of the adventures of Lila, a child with superpowers who lives with two moms.

In the album which will be released this Friday, January 14, Lila will save the bees threatened by pollution.

In the first volume, "The Blue Voice", she fights valiantly against a monster of garbage which pollutes the river of garbage.

Each time she goes out with her mothers, Lila is propelled on an ecological and fantastic adventure.

"Families with little or no representation"

In the “Hic et Nunc” collection, the twins of two dads and a mother question themselves on philosophical questions: differences are what to be small, to grow up. In March, We do not count for butter will be released "L'amoureuse de Simone", a love story between two black girls. In June, the heroine of “My name is Julie” will be a transgender girl. "We want to act for the visibility of children and families little or not represented in children's literature, by trivializing them, to fight against discrimination. "

The young publishing house, launched last October, is already available in 350 bookstores. As at L'Atelier (XXth), which receives requests for children's readings several times a month with two fathers or two mothers. “We had very few offers on the subject, and we are very happy to be able to offer this theme today. The Lila collection also addresses the ecology and the format of these hardback albums we like a lot. The colored illustrations, the philosophical or fantastic stories, give a pleasant, fluid reading. In the landscape of children's literature which fights against stereotypes, On ne count pour le fromage is joining the feminist publishing houses Talents Hauts and La ville brûlle.
