Sinister supernatural thriller for readers aged 12+

Older readers will be gripped by The Changing Man by Tomi Oyemakinde, which comes with an accompanying activity pack, which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in September 2023.

The Changing Man is an extraordinary book, unlike anything we've ever read before. Set in an exclusive boarding school and starring a diverse and relatable cast of characters, it had us completely gripped from start to finish.


If it was left to her, Ife Adebola wouldn’t be starting at Nithercott School. Because despite her being in the Urban Achievers scholarship program, her parents can barely afford the tuition. But when another student, Malika, begins acting strange, Ife can’t help but wonder if there’s more going on at Nithercott than she realizes. Could there be any truth to the school’s decades-old legend of the Changing Man? Is there any connection to the missing older brother of her classmate, Ben? Can Ife and her new friends act quickly enough to uncover who is behind everything, before one—or all—of them is the Changing Man’s next victim?

Tomi Oyemakinde grew up in London and the Netherlands. He is committed to crafting stories centered on Black protagonists thriving across genres, audiences & worlds. The Changing Man is his debut novel.

The activity pack includes stickers, book club-style questions to ponder and a welcome note from Tomi Oyemakinde. There’s also a codebreaker puzzle to solve and a recipe for cinnamon French toast to enjoy, 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.
