A fun and inspiring illustrated early chapter book for readers aged 5+

Get ready for the princess to rescue the knights in Bronte Tempestra and the Lightning Steeds by Bex Hogan! Plus have fun with the accompanying activity pack which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in May 2024.

Bronte Tempestra stole our hearts and was an easy pick for our Parakeet boxes! A feisty heroine, some epic world-building, magical creatures and lovely illustrations throughout make this perfect for newly independent readers.

Bronte Tempestra of the Storm Kingdom is taking charge of her own destiny - she will be the first ever princess to become a knight!

But knight school isn't the fun-filled adventure Bronte is expecting - the knights don't seem interested in saving . . . anything. And when she discovers that the Lightning Steeds have gone missing, leaving the Thunder Trolls to wreak havoc across the lands, she knows it's her moment to prove just how brave a princess can be.

Bronte must face down pompous griffin lords and bare-bottomed cloud-stealing gnomes, monstrous horrorflies and spooky zombits. The future of the entire kingdom is at stake!

Raised on a healthy diet of fantasy and fairy tales, Bex Hogan has spent much of her life lost in daydreams. Writing her stories down was a natural progression and now she enjoys sharing her time between living in the real world and escaping to her imagination. A Cornish girl at heart, Bex now lives in Cambridgeshire with her beautiful family.

The activity pack includes book club-style questions to ponder, facts about knights, and a recipe for coconut meringue snow clouds, alongside stickers, jokes and further reading recommendations. Solve our word search, design a coat of arms and make a rain cloud in a jar!

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