The Pirate Mums by Jodie Lancet-Grant, illus. by Lydia Corry


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!




'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


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