In this book Russell is super anxious about the family reunion when he s going to be pinched, squeezed, kicked and thwacked by a bunch of relatives who he doesn t want to touch him Instead of discussing consent, Russell triumphs by learning how to slither, duck, shout, etc Which is one sort of victory I guess The ideas in this book are dated AF, which is a shame because the illustrations are cute Not recommended.
