愛有很多種，但是不需要羞怯不敢表達 - Green Tots Club
Raphael常常和Jerome膩在一塊騎車回家邊說笑、吃零食。Raphael和爸爸媽媽也是Jerome、Jerome的掛在嘴上，凡事都要提一下他們在一塊的趣事。爸爸媽媽聽到都煩了~ 這讓Raphel很沮喪，他覺得很受傷，因為Jerome是他的死黨，為什麼爸爸媽媽不懂得再多聽一點他分享和Jerome相處的快樂呢？他逕自覺得就算他邀請Jerome一塊去希瑪拉雅山探險，他都不會拒絕。有這個好友比爸爸媽媽還強。總之就是這麼Raphael loves Jerome這麼簡單！
This story follows a little boy named Raphael, whose daily rhythm is steeped in his immense affection for his friend Jerome. The two boys share jokes and snacks and plan future adventures to the Himalayas. Even when Raphael’s constant talk of Jerome is driving his parents crazy, he remains steadfast: “Raphael loves Jerome. I can say it. It’s easy.” And the truth is, when he’s with Jerome, Raphael feels happy, liked, and understood―even special. Thomas Scotto’s simple, strong, and insightful prose and Olivier Tallec’s delightful, expressive illustrations give much emotion and immediacy to the story.
