A witty & theatrical adventure story, perfect for kids aged 8+

Readers will be absorbed by the highly original story and important message in The Dangerous Life of Ophelia Bottom by Susie Bower plus an accompanying activity pack, which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in September 2022.

“Ophelia Bottom is a character we couldn't help but fall in love with! She's brave and relatable and a brilliant example of the difference young people can make to their communities and to the wider world.

~Sarah


About the book

Ophelia Bottom longs for an ordinary life: to have normal, well-behaved parents rather than embarrassing actors, and to live in a house that stays still. Instead, she’s stuck living in a rickety converted van – and having to manage her parents’ often disastrous plays at Bottom’s Travelling Theatre.

When the family are forced to stay in the idyllic town of Stopford, Ophelia’s dream appears to be coming true. But someone is trying to drive the Bottoms out, and there’s the issue of the strange Stopford motto: PLASTIC IS FANTASTIC – DIFFERENT IS DANGEROUS. Can Ophelia discover what lurks behind Stopford’s perfect appearance, before she loses everything that makes her family so special?

About the author

Susie Bower used to work for the BBC and Channel 4 where she wrote and directed TV programmes for children. She is the author of several books, including The Three Impossibles and School for Nobodies.

About the activity pack

It includes book club-style questions to ponder, a recipe for homemade baked beans and instructions for creating a recycled plant pot. There’s also a theatrical word puzzle  and a costume design activity, alongside jokes, facts 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.
