Ok, prepare yourself – this might just be one of the most dangerously sweet publications we have featured in a while. And it will get you. You will be won over by the charm, the illustrations, the painfully lovely relationship that plays out in front of you where boyfriends kiss girlfriends’ heads, order them pizzas, make them cups of tea, fall asleep on top of them on the sofa and yet still refuse to bake them biscuits. And guess what – it’s all true and based on the relationship between Rice and her boyfriend, artist Luke Pearson.
The appropriately named Soppy is only one of the brilliant publications to come out of Philippa’s Nottingham studio, sitting among titles like My Cardboard Life, Crisis, and Sister BFF’s. What can we say, she does relationships well. Really well. And you will love it, if with a little green tinge to the skin as you read.
