A thought-provoking sci-fi adventure for readers aged 12+

Head into space with The Last Storyteller by Donna Barba Higuera, plus enjoy an accompanying activity pack, which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in December 2022.

This beautiful book combines space travel with exceptional storytelling in a thrilling sci-fi adventure. We were moved by Petra's story, in particular her family relationships, and inspired by the author's message about activism and the power of stories.


Relocating to a new planet after Earth is destroyed, 12-year-old Petra Peña’s suspended animation fails during the 370-year journey, so when all the other children are mysteriously reprogrammed and the adults purged, Petra awakes to discover she is the only person who remembers Earth. In the face of a sinister Collective that is now running the ship, Petra alone carries the stories of our past, and with them, any hope for our future.

Donna Barba Higuera is a multi-award winning author and New York Times bestseller She lives in Washington State, USA with her family, three dogs and two frogs.

The activity pack includes stickers, book club-style questions to ponder and a welcome note from Donna Barba Higuera. There’s also a drawing activity inspired by a North American desert landscape and a recipe for empanadas, alongside jokes and further reading recommendations.

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