Magical and mysterious fantasy for readers aged 12+

Older readers will be enchanted by On Silver Tides by Sylvia Bishop, which comes with an accompanying activity pack, which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in February 2024.

“This is a lovely gem of a book, highly original and hugely moving with a stunning watery setting, a gripping plot and an inspiring heroine. It has such a classic feel, but buckets of contemporary relevance and was an easy pick for our Macaw boxes"

Kelda has always protected her little sister Isla from danger on the rivers, and from the suspicions of their community. For Isla cannot breathe underwater – and so her very existence is forbidden by silvermen’s Lore.
Now the rivers of England are growing sick: monstrous creatures are awakening and a fierce torrent of blame falls upon Kelda’s family. When betrayal comes, the sisters escape on a desperate journey upstream. Joining forces with a mysterious boy, Kelda discovers the darkest depths of her kind’s secret history. But to save both her sister and the very life of Britain’s waterways, Kelda will have to make a sacrifice – one that will change her life forever.

Sylvia Bishop is the author of several books for young readers, and her work has been translated into seventeen languages. She lives in Bristol, England. When not writing, she can be found reading, performing comedy and - when she gets the chance - swimming in rivers.

The activity pack includes stickers, book club-style questions to ponder and a welcome note from Sylvia Bishop. There’s also a word fill to solve and a recipe for homemade chocolate digestive biscuits, alongside jokes and further reading recommendations.

Activity packs are a handy A5 size and printed on uncoated paper which is fully recyclable.

We dispatch orders Monday - Friday.
