** 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.

“We were completely hooked by this high-octane page-turner - and also very moved by the story of Darren Devlin, a misunderstood and sensitive young teenager who we think many readers will relate to.”

~Sarah

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...

About the author

Anna Goodall was born in London into a family of musicians. After working in publishing, running a small literary magazine, bookselling and very occasional journalism, Anna took a Masters in Scriptwriting at Goldsmiths. Maggie Blue and the Dark World is her first book.

About the activity pack

It includes a bookmark, stickers, book club-style questions to ponder and an exclusive welcome note from Anna Goodall. There’s also a drawing activity and a recipe for malt loaf, alongside jokes 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.

About Parrot Street Book Club subscriptions

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.
