A beautifully illustrated historical tale for kids aged 5+

Readers of all ages will be enchanted by this bundle containing The Book Cat, written by Polly Faber and illustrated by Clara Vulliamy plus an accompanying activity pack, which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in June 2022.

“Polly and Clara are one of our favourite author/illustrator partnerships and the combination of words and pictures is simply beautiful”

~Emily

About the book

Morgan is a young orphan who lives off scavenging – until he finds a cosy home at a famous London publishing house. Over time he learns a trade – and soon becomes the very best book cat in the business. And then the Blitz begins.

Morgan finds himself training up twenty odd kittens to be book cats, and then there is the small matter of secretly evacuating them out of London. Happily, Morgan has a plan.

About the author and illustrator

Both Polly and Clara have children’s books in their blood. Polly’s grandfather set up the publishing house Faber & Faber, whilst Clara is the daughter of award-winning author and illustrator Shirley Hughes.

Together Polly and Clara have created the Mango and Bambang series and Picking Pickle, to critical acclaim.

About the activity pack

It includes book club-style questions to ponder, facts about the Blitz and a feline drawing activity. There’s also a recipe for a wartime cake and instructions for making a cat bookmark 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 Parakeet reading group, aged roughly 5 to 8, who are emerging or newly independent readers. Many in this group prefer to listen to the books being read aloud by an adult.
