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 a swashbuckling adventure changes everything!


Why we love this book:

This fantastically fun book focuses on just how embarrassing parents can be, especially when they’re different. But this LGBTQ+ book wonderfully normalises the family setup while focusing on how frustrating Billy finds his mums for being pirates, until it’s that difference that makes them perfect for saving the day. A beautiful book that celebrates difference.
