What more could a book about setting sail on the open seas with pirates need? More queer representation, of course! That’s exactly what Maiden Voyage, a brand new illustrated children’s book, offers.
From the authors of Promised Land, a gay romance fantasy children’s book released last year, this book features the same fun illustrations and diversity. Maiden Voyage is written by Jaimee Poipoi, Adam Reynolds, and Chaz Harris.
It centers on a fisherman’s daughter who inherits a treasure map and joins the crew of a sea captain. However, a wicked queen sends a group of pirates after them to keep a dark secret hidden. The book currently has 5 days left of its Kickstarter campaign. It’s a little over 80% to its goal.
