Izzy the inventor

Excellent book, I read a chapter a night to my 5year old daughter, she loved the map and uses her imagination while listening to me reading, by chapter 5 she was reading some sentences with me!
Brilliant book lots to keep interest.

This is the second subscription I have ordered for my grandson, he absolutely loves them!

Highly recommend

Such a wonderful gift idea. Giving the gift of reading is super and this option allows you to do it at the lastminute, if you happen to be put of ideas.

Just perfect for young book lovers.

I just love these fun totes for my grandchildren to carry around their treasured books. They’re colourful, well-made and original. My only criticism is that a blue version was unavailable - and blue’s a popular colour.

Great book and pack

I brought a one off book and pack to see if daughter would like it. After receiving it my daughter and I love it. Book was great for her reading ability and age and the activities kept us busy for hours. I would recommend

Gorgeous gift sets for kids - excellent value for money

The Cloud Thief by James Nicol

I bought this book for my 13 year old daughter. I've started to read it too. The story starts quickly, (in the 1st 2 chapters.) the story keeps you interested by the changeable pace and there are no scary/shocker characters. The two main characters show friendship, caring and respect. I've not finished the book yet but I'm intrigued how the story will end!
Well Done to James Nicol for another very good young teenager book.

The Prisoner of Bhopal
Edward De La Rue
An amazing book about WW1

It is an amazing story about the hardships of life in India after WW1. You can really connect to Sanjiv’s story and it makes your heart sore when Amil learns how to read the wind. It is a lovely book and it shows the cruelty in which some factory owners treated their employees back then. I love this book and will definitely recommend it to my friends. It is a top tier read and a must read book for 9 to 11 year olds!

The Blue Book of Nebo
Edward De La Rue
A great,indulging story.

It was an amazing book and I really like the concept of The End. You can really connect to Rowena’s tales about love and life before The End and it adds that extra little something to the plot. Overall it is an amazing read and I will definitely recommend this book to my friends. This is a must read book for 10 to 11 year olds!👍

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

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!
