Thrilling and pacey adventure for readers aged 12+

Older readers will be gripped by Deadlock by Simon Fox, which comes with an accompanying activity pack, which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in July 2023.

“This edge-of-your seat adventure is action-packed and perfect for fans of Alex Rider. It's also a story with real heart and characters young readers will relate to and empathise with. It was an easy pick for our Macaw boxes - we loved it!


Archie Blake thought his policeman father teaching him how to pick locks and open safes was just a bit of fun. But when a diamond necklace is stolen and his dad is arrested, Archie realises the only way to prove Dad’s innocence is to go on the run and use everything he’s learned to uncover the truth. But Archie soon finds himself deeply tangled in the criminal underworld, where it’s hard to know who to trust and even harder to see what’s right or wrong. Will Archie be able to find a way out before it’s too late?

Simon Fox lives in Sussex with his extraordinarily patient wife and two teenage children who never tidy their rooms but would take on the world for each other. Before becoming a writer, he worked as an accountant. He is determined to never go back.

The activity pack includes stickers, book club-style questions to ponder and a welcome note from Simon Fox. There’s also a codebreaker to solve and a 3D puzzle craft project to have fun with, alongside jokes and further reading recommendations.

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

We dispatch orders Monday - Friday.

  • Standard UK Royal Mail delivery £2.99 (free on orders over £25)
  • UK Express delivery also available from £5.50

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.

We are a monthly book subscription by post for children aged 5 to 14, focused on helping families discover new and different chapter books.

This title was sent to subscribers in the Macaw reading group, aged roughly 12 to 14, who need books that feel grown-up but aren’t quite ready for all young adult books.
