Explore the mysterious Hotel Magnifique in this exciting book by Emily J. Taylor, which comes with an accompanying activity pack, which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in May 2023.

We were so intrigued by the concept of this book - an opulent luxury hotel that changes location every night, with an exclusive guest list and magical themed rooms. It's an exciting fantasy adventure, but quickly takes a sinister turn - we were hooked from the very first page!


The legendary Hotel Magnifique is like no other: a magical world of golden ceilings, enchanting soirées and fountains flowing with champagne. It changes location every night, stopping in each place only once a decade. When the Magnifique comes to her hometown, Jani hatches a plan to secure jobs there for herself and her younger sister, longing to escape their dreary life. Luck is on their side, and with a stroke of luminous ink on paper the sisters are swept into a life of adventure and opulence. But who is the shadowy maître who runs the hotel? And can the girls discover the true price paid by those who reside there – before it’s too late?

Emily J. Taylor was born and raised in California, but loves to travel and has since lived in four states and two continents. She currently works as a creative director in Minneapolis. Hotel Magnifique is her debut novel.

The activity pack includes an exclusive signed book plate, stickers, book club-style questions to ponder and a welcome note from Emily J. Taylor. There’s also a logic puzzle to solve and a recipe for apricot tartines to enjoy, alongside jokes and further reading recommendations.

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