A fun, hair-raising adventure for kids aged 8+

Young readers will be gripped by Shiver Point: It Came From the Woods by Gabriel Dylan, plus they'll have fun with the accompanying activity pack, which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in October 2023.

We were completely gripped by this book! Shiver Point is a super accessible horror story for middle grade readers and the start of a fantastic new series. The diverse cast of characters plus a story packed with twists and turns mean this is sure to be a hit with young bookworms.


Shiver Point is boring. Nothing interesting ever happens there and there's never anything fun to do. At least that's what Alex has always thought. Until one night, in the dead dark, he spots what looks like a meteorite plummeting into Howlmoor Forest.

Intrigued, Alex goes to investigate. But little does he know, four other kids have also spotted the strange streak in the sky: 'troublemaker' Oli, studious Sophia, curious Mo and budding engineer Riley. What they discover is far beyond their wildest dreams - in fact it belongs in their nightmares. Can the gang work together to save the town from the bloodthirsty bodysnatcher that's arrived with the meteorite before it's too late?

One thing's for sure: Shiver Point will never be the same again.

Gabriel Dylan is a surfer, snowboarder, secondary-school teacher and children's author. He lives in the south west of England with his wife and three children.

The activity pack includes book club-style questions to ponder and a recipe for a delicious fish pie. You'll also make a kaleidoscope, solve our meteor-related word fill and design a skateboard, alongside jokes, facts and further reading recommendations.

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