A thrilling classic adventure, perfect for kids aged 8+

Readers will be transported to the Lake District in 1940 with Cuckoo Summer by Jonathan Tulloch plus an accompanying activity pack, which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in August 2022.

“This book has intriguing secrets and two fantastic lead characters at its heart. We love the historical setting, gorgeous location and in particular the budding friendship between local boy Tommy and evacuee Sally. .

~Sarah


About the book

Summer 1940. As the cuckoo sings out across the Lake District, life is about to change for ever for local boy Tommy and his friend Sally, the mysterious evacuee girl who lives on the neighbouring farm. When they find a wounded Nazi airman in the woods, Sally persuades Tommy not to report it but to keep the German hidden. This starts a chain of events that leads to the uncovering of secrets about Sally’s past and a summer of adventure that neither child will ever forget.

About the author

Jonathan Tulloch is an award-winning author and naturalist. He is a Cumbrian native and was inspired to write Cuckoo Summer by stories his mum told him about her experiences growing up on a Lake District farm during the Second World War.

About the activity pack

It includes an exclusive signed book plate, book club-style questions to ponder, a recipe for honey biscuits and instructions for making a landscape collage. There’s also a word puzzle inspired by Wordsworth and a cuckoo drawing activity, alongside jokes, facts and further reading recommendations.

Packing & postage

  • Price includes UK P&P.
  • Activity packs are a handy A5 size and printed on uncoated paper which is fully recyclable.
  • Our packs are wrapped in a simple paper sleeve and sent out in a cardboard book wrap – we would be so grateful if you could recycle both.
