Good goes up against evil in this brilliant bundle which contains His Royal Hopeless by Chloe Perrin plus an accompanying activity pack, which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in October 2021.
“We love the brilliant cast of characters, especially Robbie’s gutsy best friend, Layla, and were enthralled by the atmospheric setting!”~Emily
About the book
Robbie is heir to the Sinistevils, the evilest dynasty in the world. But Robbie isn’t evil. In fact, he’s warm and kind, a bit naïve and eternally optimistic. And his mother, the evil queen, can’t bear it. Life in this royal family is about to get terribly complicated.
About the author
Chloe Perrin is currently studying Creative Writing at Brunel University but has previously worked as a youth worker, drama teacher and professional storyteller. This is their debut novel.
About the activity pack
It includes book club-style questions to ponder, a recipe for crow cookies and an evil fairytale name generator. There’s also instructions for creating your own natural paintbrushes and facts about crows and rats alongside jokes and further reading recommendations.
