ABOUT LET'S BE WEIRD TOGETHER
Being in love makes people happy...and weird (in a good way!). This warm and humorous illustrated gift book celebrates both love and the delightfully bizarre quirks, habits, and traditions that make each couple unique and crazy about each other—a perfect Valentine's gift or anytime love token that says "we're weird, but I love it."
Weird meets weird—and the rest is history!
This is a book about weird couples and the tiny two-person universes they create.
It’s about accidentally wearing the exact same outfit. It’s about made-up songs. It’s about your rules for the thermostat. It’s about breakfast rituals, and funny nicknames, and long hugs, and that voice you pretend the cat has.
If you’re half of a weird couple, or if you have a favorite weird couple, or if you just love love, this book is for you.
