A fun and inclusive mystery for kids aged 5+

This bundle of reading fun will keep them busy for hours! It contains a copy of Major and Mynah by Karen Owen, illustrated by Louise Forshaw, plus an accompanying activity pack, which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in July 2022. 

We love that this book combines humour, action and adventure, not to mention the brilliant characters and talking animals! 

Callie Major does not like wearing her new hearing aids AT ALL. But when she meets abandoned Mynah bird Bo, she realises that her ‘slugs’ mean she can communicate with him!

Together the unlikely duo set off to catch a thief who has been causing trouble all over town. With high-speed chases, a very peckish bird and purple POO, this book is a super fun and wild adventure!

Karen Owen has been partially deaf since childhood, and wrote the character Callie to reflect who she wanted to be when she was younger – funny, clever and with a special gift to hear something that other people cannot!

The activity pack includes book club-style questions to ponder, facts about talking birds and a recipe for easy berry ice cream, alongside jokes and further reading recommendations. You'll also write your own limericks, create a bird silhouette painting and create your own detective agent identity!

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 bookshop 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.
