Set sail on an swashbuckling pirate adventure with Billy and his brave, strong, and unique mums!

Billy’s family is not what you’d call ordinary. His mums won’t listen to NORMAL music. They love to sing sea shanties and dance jigs in the lounge. Their clothes are highly unusual, they have a rude parrot for a pet, and their taste in house design is, well . . . FISHY. Billy wishes his family could be more like everyone else’s, until an ocean adventure changes everything!

Written by Jodie Lancet-Grant and illustrated by Lydia Corry, Pirate Mums is a celebration a celebration of inclusive families, perfect for sharing with young children who love adventure.

Little fans of adventure will also love The Marvellous Doctors for Magical Creatures.
