I Don’t Want to Talk About It is a story for young children about divorce. When a child’s parents tell her they have decided to divorce, the last thing she wants to do is talk about it. Instead, she wants to roar as loud as a lion so she can’t hear their painful words, or turn into a fish and hide her tears in the sea, or even become a bird and fly away. However, with her parents’ help, she starts to consider what life will be like after the divorce and learns that although some things will change, many other things will remain the same. Most importantly, she realises that although her parents may not agree about much, one thing they do agree on is that they both love her very much and will always be her mum and dad.
