Mysterious eco-adventure for readers aged 12+

Young readers will be gripped by War of the Wind by award-winning author Victoria Williamson, which comes with an accompanying activity pack, which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in March 2023.

War of the Wind is a thrilling mystery set in a stunning location, with ecological themes and a fantastic, diverse cast of characters who we were instantly drawn to. It has so much to say about prejudice, community and the role of technology in our lives.


On a remote Scottish island, fourteen-year-old Max's life changes forever when he loses his hearing in a boating accident. Struggling to make sense of his new life and finding it hard to adapt in school, he begins to notice other - even stranger - changes taking place when a new wind farm appears off the island's coast. Max and his friends discover that a sinister scientist is using wind turbines to experiment on the islanders. Can they find a way to shut down the government's secret test before it spins out of control?

Victoria Williamson grew up in Scotland surrounded by hills and books. She has worked as a teacher in Cameroon, Malawi, China and the UK. She is the author of several books for children and young adults.

The activity pack includes stickers, book club-style questions to ponder and a welcome note from Victoria Williamson. There’s also a word search and a recipe for delicious Scottish-inspired shortbread, 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.
