Contest Brief

I need a children's book Illustrated. Eleanor-Louise has two first names. She also has two diverse fathers; each with their own parenting style. Most kids would find that confusing. But five-year-old Eleanor-Louise doesn’t. In fact, when she’s not busy hanging from monkey bars and making new friends, she’s confident enough to answer questions about being a girl with two names and two Dads.


ELEANOR-LOUISE
Eleanor-Louise has two names,
Eleanor and Louise.
Eleanor-Louise also has two Daddies,
Papa-Daddy.
And Daddy-Papa.
Having two names can be confusing.
So can having two Daddies
Who aren’t anything alike.
Papa-Daddy wakes up early.
Daddy-Papa needs his rest.
Daddy-Papa likes things neat.
Papa-Daddy doesn’t mind a wreck.
Papa-Daddy has a flair for fashion.
Daddy-Papa can’t seem to match.
Daddy-Papa can make origami.
But poor Papa-Daddy hasn’t a clue.
Sometimes both Papa-Daddy and Daddy-Papa
Take Eleanor-Louise to the park,
Where she likes to hang upside down
From the monkey bars.
Daddy-Papa is proud that Eleanor-Louise
Is so brave.
But Eleanor-Louise’s courage makes
Papa-Daddy a nervous mess.
Sometimes people at the park are curious.
And ask lots of questions.
Why do you have two names?
And two very different Dads?
And how did you learn to hang upside down like that?
Eleanor-Louise doesn’t mind the questions.
Sometimes she answers them
With a simple “Just because I do.”
But usually she’s too busy making friends
And showing them how to swing from monkey bars to bother.
Eleanor-Louise likes that her name is special,
And she especially likes that her Papa-Daddy
And her Daddy-Papa are, too.
