Annotation

Phoebe wonders why her mummies aren't married. With her trusty sidekick, Biscuit the cat, she plans a big surprise wedding. Soon, the whole town is in on it and they are all coming along! But what about You-Know-Who? This gorgeous children's picture book tells a timeless tale about a little girl planning a big surprise - a wedding - for her parents, but with a contemporary twist as her parents are both women. With a child's innocence, the little girl, Phoebe, doesn't understand the obstacles and can't see prejudice. She soon has everyone on her side.
