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

Younger readers will find much to relate to in The Council of Good Friends by Nikesh Shukla and illustrated by Rochelle Falconer, plus they'll have fun with the accompanying activity pack which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in September 2023.

The Council of Good Friends is a fun, real world story about a group of friends who find themselves embroiled in a hilarious prank war that gets a bit out of hand! It's hugely entertaining and stars a brilliant and diverse cast of characters that young readers will really relate to.

Vinay, Musa, Inua and Nish are best friends. Nothing can separate them… until one day when Vinay’s cousin comes to invade his bunk bed haven (i.e. share his room). When a prank war starts, can the friends remember what really matters?

Filled with fun illustrations by Rochelle Falconer, The Council of Good Friends is full of both hilarious mayhem and caring moments of friendship.

Nikesh Shukla is a novelist and screenwriter. He is the author and editor of 10 books for adults and young adults, and co-founder of the literary journal, The Good Journal and The Good Literary Agency. The Council of Good Friends is his children's debut.

The activity pack includes book club-style questions to ponder, facts about the festival of Holi and a recipe for rotli, alongside stickers, jokes and further reading recommendations. Solve our sporty anagrams, create a portrait of your favourite person and have fun with our paint splat project too!

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