Aalfred and Aalbert lead solitary lives. Sometimes, Aalfred thinks he might like to be part of a pair, and sometimes Aalbert thinks he might like to be one of two. But Aalfred sleeps all day, and Aalbert sleeps all night &mdashso how will the two ever meet? Luckily, a helpful bystander intervenes, and when Aalfred and Aalbert 's paths cross in the most unexpected way, they find that they go together quite well, just like cheese and broccoli.
This adorable story about two aardvarks and an unlikely matchmaker will appeal to families with LGBTQ parents and family members as author-illustrator Morag Hood keeps children laughing with funny situations and entertaining teachable moments about relationships.

Full-color illustrations were created in gouache and colored digitally.

Aalbert and Aalfred are aardvarks who live very close to each other but never have met. Aalfred loves the nighttime, while Aalbert loves the sunshine. Sometimes the aardvarks think it would be wonderful if they had a friend to play with; some activities, like playing on a seesaw or tennis, require more than one person. Most of the time, though, the aardvarks are content. Their bird friend thinks that it would be wonderful if the two aardvarks met. The bird tries all kinds of tricks to get Aalbert and Aalfred to meet, but nothing works. The bird becomes so sad that Aalfred decides to cheer him up. When he goes to help his bird friend, Aalfred falls down into Aalbert’s burrow. Finally, they meet! Aalfred, Aalbert, and the bird live happily every “aafter.” Charming illustrations accompany this tale of finding friends. The story is told with great humor that will engage young readers. This is a lovely book about finding a new friend.
