Waterstones Says

With sea shanties, pet parrots, fishy decorations and adventures aplenty, The Pirate Mums is a riotous story about how what makes a family different is what makes them special.

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!

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A sea-faring adventure deftly packed with humour and charm, The Pirate Mums is a heartfelt reminder that what makes your family different is what makes them special." - Lauren Ace, author of The Girls, winner of the Waterstones Children's Book Award for Illustrated Books.

"Absolutely swashbuckling, climb aboard!" - Jessica Love, author and illustrator of Julian is a Mermaid

"The rollicking story of Billy's two mums, who save the day on a school trip to the seaside, thus convincing Billy to stop longing to have a normal family... A rainbow-hued riot of sea shanties and pirate banter." - The Guardian

"At its heart this is simply a pirate caper featuring two heroic female leads; but with its healthy sprinkling of rainbows and heartfelt message around love and acceptance, it will also be a valuable addition to any LGBTQ reading list for little ones." - Scottish BookTrust

This is a super, swashbuckling story which celebrates difference in a really clever way.

And with a storm battering the boat, a captain stuck in the loo, a seasick teacher, and an ingenious and immensely satisfying... More

“F-aaarhh harr harr -abulously Piratical”

Billy has an issue and it's not that he has two mums (which is one of the most delightful things about this book), it is that his mums are rather different in another way. He has a sneaking suspicion that his... More
