Just in time for the month of love!
Published by Affirm in February 2023
Once upon a pandemic, the animals came out to play while we humans were away, including three goats that– frankly–think it’s much nicer when we’re not around. Yes, we’re not good at sharing this beautiful planet we call home, but surely we can find ways to make it an inviting place for everyone?
'Room for Me and You' was inspired by the true stories and amazing sightings of animals taking over cities during the 2020 lockdown.

IG Live with Deema Al Alami, book blogger and reading advocate, about all things publishing - February 2022
Founded by Racha Mourtada in 2018, Luqoom is a boutique publisher of pretty picture books in Arabic and English, based in Beirut. We believe books are treats to be savoured. They should be held, pored over, snuggled with and shared.
At Luqoom, we know that the combination of spare prose and beautiful imagery can create something magical. We strive to make luscious books that are captivating and visually rich, inviting kids (and the young at heart) into a world where they can let their curiosity and imagination run free.
We pride ourselves on using sustainably sourced materials and local talent.
We are particularly partial to science, silliness and good storytelling.
