Spellbinding historical novel for readers aged 12+

Older readers will be gripped by The Door of No Return by Kwame Alexander, which comes with an accompanying activity pack, which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in October 2023.

We've been looking forward to sharing The Door of No Return with our subscribers for a very long time. It's a beautifully written, lyrical coming-of-age story and a powerful portrayal of West African history - one of the best things we've read all year."
~Sarah

Kofi Offin has dreams of water, of its urgent whisper that beckons with promises and secrets. He has heard the call on the banks of Upper Kwanta, West Africa, where he lives. He loves these things above all else: his family, the fireside tales of his father’s father, a girl named Ama, and, of course, swimming. But when the unthinkable – a sudden death – occurs during a festival between rival villages, Kofi ends up in a fight for his life. What happens next will send him on a harrowing journey across land and sea, and away from everything he loves. Yet Kofi’s dreams may be the key to his freedom…

Kwame Alexander is a poet, educator, and the New York Times bestselling author of numerous books, including Rebound, shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal, The Crossover, winner of the Newbery Medal, and The Undefeated, winner of the Caldecott Medal.

The activity pack includes stickers, book club-style questions to ponder and a welcome note from Kwame Alexander. There’s also a word puzzle to solve and instructions for making and playing oware, a traditional African board game, alongside jokes and further reading recommendations.

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