Join Leon and his new friends in The Asparagus Bunch by Jessica Scott-Whyte, plus enjoy an accompanying activity pack, which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in December 2022.

“This hilarious book is thoughtful, relatable and packed with both empathy and humour. We were rooting for Leon, Tanya and Lawrence from start to finish. Perfectly pitched for an early teen audience - or indeed anyone with a sweet tooth!"


In this hilarious real-world tale starring a brilliant cast of neurodiverse characters, 13-year-old Leon is starting again at yet another new school. This time, however, things may turn out differently, as help comes from where he least expects it - namely classmates, Tanya and Lawrence, who both face their own challenges. When the school bully humiliates Leon in the school canteen and almost destroys Lawrence, Leon very reluctantly agrees to the formation of a club, The Asparagus Bunch.

Jessica Scott-Whyte was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland and now lives in Paris, France with her family. She has worked as a fashion journalist and in PR. The Asparagus Bunch is her first book.

The activity pack includes stickers, book club-style questions to ponder, an exclusive signed book plate and a welcome note from Jessica Scott-Whyte. There’s also a word puzzle to solve and a recipe for M&M cookie bars, 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.

  • Standard UK Royal Mail delivery £2.99 (free on orders over £25)
  • UK Express delivery also available from £5.50

Our packs are wrapped in a simple paper sleeve and sent out in a cardboard book wrap – we would be so grateful if you could recycle both.
