Barebum Billy Children's Picture Book

Type: Books

Written & directed by Nicholas Snelling

Illustrated by Glen Le Lievre
Finalist in Australia's AUREALIS AWARDS for 'Children's Fiction'

 BAREBUM BILLY  is a 'laugh-out-loud' funny storybook about a little boy who loves to strip off and run around nude in the most inappropriate of places – his snooty neighbours’ manicured lawn, the supermarket, an art museum, the zoo, a golfing green, and even his local church!

​Billy’s neurotic toy robot is horrified. His poor parents are mortified. Meanwhile, all sorts of conservative folk are fuming mad over Billy's antics.

​But one day Billy meets someone special who helps turn his skill for streaking stark naked into a wonderful career.
