Editorial Review

"Same-sex couples haven't always been accepted in society, but it is possible for love and beauty to triumph. Two boys are friends and age gracefully together as a same-sex couple. Singer/Songwriter Michel Theriault effectively collaborates with artist/illustrator Magali Ben in the pages of Roger and Matthew to provide an informative picture book with an LGBTQ theme that is sensitive, thoughtful, and unreservedly recommended for children ages 6-9 and appropriate for family, elementary school, and community library Contemporary Social Issues picture book collections for young readers."
Midwest Book Review

"A sweet introduction to the idea of same-gender couples that focuses on the love between the two individuals and completely normalizes the relationship on a level appropriate for the youngest readers."
Kirkus Review

"An ode to the quiet constancy of love, Roger and Matthew knocks on the doors of our hearts and invites conversations."
