Inspiring historical adventure for readers aged 12+

Head into the Wild West with Little Sure Shot by Matt Ralphs, plus enjoy an accompanying activity pack, which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in January 2023.

This fictionalised account of sharp-shooting Annie Oakley's life story is surprising, gripping and in places pretty gritty, too. We couldn't help but love courageous Annie and her big-hearted family.


Annie’s family work hard to survive on their Ohio farm. Annie’s happiest when hunting game with her pa, and she doesn’t care one bit that it’s not the kind of thing girls are meant to do. When tragedy strikes, the family is thrown into deepest poverty. Until one day, Annie dares to pick up Pa’s old rifle, and find a way to feed her starving family.

Can Annie’s amazing skills take her all the way to fame and fortune? An inspiring novel based on the incredible life of sharpshooting star Annie Oakley..

Matt Ralphs has worked in publishing as an editor and writer for many years. He writes fiction and non-fiction books, with a focus on history and the darker side of myths and folklore. He lives in England on a canal boat called Nostromo.

The activity pack includes stickers, book club-style questions to ponder and a welcome note from Matt Ralphs. There’s also a word puzzle to solve and a recipe for cornbread, alongside jokes and further reading recommendations.

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