A heart-warming sci-fi adventure for kids aged 8+

Middle grade readers will be entertained by SCRAP by Guy Bass, plus have fun with the accompanying activity pack, which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in January 2024.

“We were completely gripped by SCRAP, a sci-fi adventure packed with empathy, humour and a cast of brilliant characters that we think young readers will really love. It's the first in a trilogy and we can't wait to see where the story goes next!


When the humans arrive on Somewhere 513, they discover that the robots sent to prepare the planet for Humanity’s arrival have chosen to keep it for themselves. Only one robot remains loyal – K1-NG, aka King of the Robots. But even with the most powerful robot on their side, the outlawed humans don’t stand a chance.

Ten years on, Gnat and her sister Paige are the only humans left and have spent their lives hidden underground. Now they must venture out in search of the one robot that stood by the humans. There’s just one problem – the once mighty K1-NG has vowed never to help another human for as long as he lives…

Guy is an award-winning author, whose children's books series include Stitch Head, Skeleton Keys, Spynosaur, The Legend of Frog, Dinkin Dings and Atomic! In 2010 Dinkin Dings and the Frightening Things won the Blue Peter Award for Most Fun Book with Pictures. Guy lives in London with his wife and no dog - yet.

The activity pack includes book club-style questions to ponder and a recipe for homemade power balls. You'll also make a junk model robot, solve our robot word puzzle and design your own robot, alongside jokes, facts 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.
