A hilarious and heart-warming story for younger readers aged 5+

Younger readers will laugh out loud at Pizza Pete and the Perilous Potions by Carrie Sellon and illustrated by Sarah Horne, plus they'll have fun with the accompanying activity pack which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in August 2023.

Pizza Pete and the Perilous Potions is laugh-out-loud funny and packed with brilliant illustrations by Sarah Horne, but Pete's story is also poignant and thought-provoking. For all those reasons it makes perfect family reading and was an easy pick for our Parakeet boxes.

Pete has made a promise - NEVER to leave home again. He loves living above the pizza shop with his dad. But when a new restaurant steals all their customers, Pete and his friend Anna must come up with an ingenious plan to sell more pizzas, otherwise he'll be forced to move.

Throw in a briefcase of magical potions, a fire-breathing dog and an exploding headteacher, and Pete's life soon ramps up from margherita to spicy pepperoni!

Carrie Sellon was born in Bristol and now lives in Hampshire with her husband, three children and many animal friends. Before becoming a writer, she used to travel the world making wildlife films for the BBC. Pizza Pete and the Perilous Potions is her first children's book.

The activity pack includes book club-style questions to ponder, facts about pizza and a recipe for dough balls, alongside stickers, jokes and further reading recommendations. Solve our magical logic puzzle, enjoy a pizza-inspired drawing activity and have fun with our fizzing potion science project too!

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

We dispatch orders Monday - Friday.
