Our book is full of pages that will accommodate anything you want to record. They're just waiting for you to fill them up with whatever is special to you, along the path of your child¹s journey. To start you off, we’ve decorated the book throughout with wonderful hand-drawn illustrations by Kat.


About US

Ugly Duck Books is a company owned by Jesse and Kat.

They first met at university at York St John in 2008 on a Film and Television production course and bonded over a mutual love of toasties. The rest you could say is history.

After many chats over many cups of tea, they both saw the need for a book like My Amazing Family and Me to be in the world. Having grown up with same sex parents and an adopted sibling Jesse approached Kat and they started the book as a project on their days off from work. Soon enough at the beginning of 2014 Ugly Duck Books was born.

"what's great about My Amazing Family and me: it's suitable for birth children and adopted, for gay parents and straight, single or coupled, or for children being raised by extended family."

we have many more items to purchase

After self publishing our book, we realised that it was not only baby books that were aimed at the nuclear family, but so were posters and cards; so we made some of our own to accommodate those two-mUMS and two-daddy families or those welcoming new additions!
