Christmas present.

Subscription bought for Christmas present. Haven't yet seen the books sent. Will be interested to hear how it went down

Fantastic gift set

Great service!

Firstly, I was very happy with the choice and variety of books on offer.
After ordering 2 books, I received the package but one of the books was lost during the delivery (the package had been opened and reattached with elastic bands). I contacted Parrot street book club and they were great, re-ordering the book straight away and sending it to me promptly. Great customer service and very friendly people!

Great pack

Loved this pack- the activities, recipe annd interesting facts were great. Looking forward to getting stuck in with my daughter.

The Wonder Brothers

I just finished it. I’m smiling. This magical book has a magical premise with humor, depth and love. The well developed characters and their particular points of view flow smoothly and I was in the fictional dream the whole time. Frank has his own eclectic style where the unbelievable is real. I laugh and feel nostalgic. 🏆

The overall condition and packaging

The packaging was great and the timing was amazing as it came with my august macaw box. The book was on perfect condition aswell as the activity pack. Absolutely fantastic.

Pixies vs Fairies

Great characters involved in an exciting adventure. Didn’t want to put it down. Will definitely appeal to a range of ages, either read solo or shared out loud. Looking forward to the next adventure.

Great book for my daughter

Bought as a present for a picky reader and it’s got her attention

Brilliant Stories

The fact that the books are wrote by authors that aren't so well known is just pure genius as they are completely new. Very well presented upon delivery. Would highly recommend Parrot Street to everyone as they are doing a tremendous job. Keeping children engaged in reading bu using their subscription service is so important at any age. Well done Parrot Street!

Fantastic read

My daughter was so excited when her first book dropped through the letterbox.
She began looking through the book and reading it immediately.

I have a huge passion for books, and want to pass that to my daughter.
We read the book together each night, and the story itself has opened a world of imagination for her.
On a recent walk, she was so excited to find a pond and imagined it to be that of the one in the story and imagined what the characters would be doing.

We can’t wait for our second book to arrive!

Lovely gift

Our grand daughter was delighted to receive her badge!

Brilliant Christmas Gift

Our nine year old granddaughter who is an avid reader is thrilled to have joined a book club! The opportunity to write a review each month will certainly add to her enjoyment.

Share the love of reading.

Such a lovely way to introduce our grandchildren to authors they might not come across and to be able to help develop their love of reading and writing their own stories. They are always keen to share the latest book to arrive during our FaceTime sessions and so, we too, are introduced to new books! It’s a win win situation in our family.


It is genuinely amazing to have found something both me and my boy adore! We received our first book this month and we have loved spending time before bed reading a chapter or 2, and going through the activity pack now we have finished the book. I cannot help but recommend both Parrot Street and our first book to everyone. Cannot wait for our next book in January!

The Cure for a Crime book and activity pack

Very pleased will make a fabulous Christmas pressie!

General offering

We loved your books. The subscription is a wonderful idea, the activities always thoughtful, many of them fun. Sadly, my girls have now outgrown the selection. I will miss you!

Good package

I bought this activity pack for my 5 year old grandson. It looks very good, but as he isn’t getting it until Christmas I don’t know what he thinks of it. I’m sure he will like it though.

Nice but not the best

I realy like the book but it is a bit hard to understand
what is happpening

Such good books and engaging content

So grateful to Parrot Street for opening my kids' eyes to new authors, genres and publishers. They've read such a good variety and it has definitely helped them with their English at school too. We've often gone on to buy other books by the same authors.

Recently I've been really grateful for the older age group, Macaw, which has helped us navigate the new world of YA fiction.

Cant recommend Parrot Street highly enough!

Authentic literature for aspiring writers

My granddaughter eagerly looks forward to receiving her book. She has found it rewarding giving her time to chill from the modern hi tech world
