Heart-warming historical adventure for readers aged 12+

Older readers will be moved by Safiyyah's War by Hiba Noor Khan, which comes with an accompanying activity pack, which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in August 2023.

“This hugely hopeful book set in wartime Paris is packed with empathy and a brilliant cast of characters, not least our extraordinary heroine, Safiyyah, whose bravery and compassion shine through in the darkest of times.”


War comes to the streets of Paris and Safiyyah’s life changes for ever. Her best friend’s family have fled, and the bombing makes her afraid to leave the mosque where she lives. But when her father is arrested by the Nazis for his secret Resistance work, it falls to Safiyyah to run the dangerous errands around the city. It’s not long before hundreds of persecuted Jews seek sanctuary at the mosque. Can Safiyyah find the courage to enter the treacherous catacombs under Paris and lead the Jews to safety?

Hiba Noor Khan is the author of six books for children, including The Little War Cat, which was long-listed for the Jhalak Prize and the UKLA Book Award.

The activity pack includes stickers, book club-style questions to ponder and a welcome note from Hiba Noor Khan. There’s also a foodie word puzzle to solve and an origami project to have fun with, alongside jokes and further reading recommendations.

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

We dispatch orders Monday - Friday.
