This beautifully illustrated story celebrates non-traditional families and captures exactly what lies at the heart of family life – love. When Nicholas wants to know which of Elvi’s two mums is her real mum, she gives him lots of clues. Her real mum is a circus performer, and a pirate, and she even teaches spiders the art of web making. But Nicholas still can’t work it out! Luckily, Elvi knows just how to explain it to her friend.
