This is Canadian, the action revolves around a permission slip to visit the Ontario Science Centre. The illustrations have a nice multicultural feel, appropriate for Toronto, without being rent-one-of-each-kid perfect,.Young Asha's mums sign her permission slip, but her teacher tells her that she can't have to mum's sign, she needs to have one mom. This elads to a debate in her class-room.I'm a bit sorry that the teacher never has to say whatshe thinks, a shouty child interrupts her. It undermines the story a little bit, that she wasn't made to retract her statement that you can't have two mums.
