Uncle Bobby's Wedding

Publisher: Hodder Children’s Books

Uncle Bobby is Chloe's favourite uncle - they have brilliant fun flying kites and dreaming together about living in lighthouses.

Yet when Uncle Bobby announces at a family picnic that he's marrying his boyfriend Jamie, Chloe feels sad. She doesn't want to lose Uncle Bobby. Yet, when Uncle Bobby explains that he wants to get married because he loves Jamie - and that he and Jamie would love to have kids just like Chloe some day - Chloe realises that may be a good reason after all.

Finally, when the wedding day comes, Uncle Bobby and Chloe's new Uncle Jamie have the most beautiful, flower-filled day, and dance the night away under the stars.

A gorgeous and heartfelt celebration of weddings, new members of the family and of gay weddings in particular, Uncle Bobby's Wedding is a huggable treat of a book, reassuring young readers that when someone they love gets married, it's no reason to think that they'll be any the less loved.

Chloe's family are rightfully delighted at the prospect of Uncle Bobby having found the person he wants to spend the rest of his life with, and explain to Chloe that it's completely normal for people to marry the ones that they really, really love.
