Bam Boom Billy/Pang Poff Pavo

Bam Boom Billy is a story about Billy, whose mum and dad are getting divorced. The day he finds out about the divorce, it feels like his world has been turned upside-down. But fortunately, he is not alone, as there are lots of children with divorced parents. This includes many of Billy’s friends, all of whom have experienced divorce in their own unique ways. And it is through his friends that Billy learns some important life lessons. Even if things break with a BAM and come to an end with a BOOM, eventually things tend to work out just fine.
