** Shortlisted for the 2021 COSTA Children's Book Award **
A curious and magical adventure for kids aged 12+
Readers of all ages will be absorbed by this highly original fantasy, Maggie Blue and the Dark World by Anna Goodall, plus an accompanying activity pack which we created for Parrot Street subscribers in January 2022.
About the book
Maggie Blue is an outsider. She lives with her eccentric aunt Esme, and has no friends other than Hoagy, a stray cat who can talk to her. When Maggie sees Ida, her foe from school, being taken through a window to another world, she is determined to save her, whatever the cost. But the dark world is full of danger, and Maggie discovers that her role is far more important than anyone could have guessed...
