A mysterious and atmospheric adventure, perfect for kids aged 8+

Readers will be inspired by the environmental themes and striking message of The Map of Leaves by Yarrow Townsend plus an accompanying activity pack, which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in July 2022.

“This is an important and beautiful book. We love the stunning setting and the complex relationships between the three central characters in particular.

~Sarah


About the book

Orla lives alone, isolated from her community with only her garden for company. When her beloved plants are blamed for a mysterious sickness, she must find a cure and uncover some terrible truths to save her garden. 

Armed only with her mother’s book of remedies Orla sets out on a barge-boat… but she’s not the only stowaway. With the rapids of the River Inkwater ahead, three children set a dangerous course from which they may never return...

About the author

Yarrow Townsend spent her childhood among the moss, oak and heather of the New Forest. Always in search of ways to be closer to the outdoors, Yarrow now lives on a narrowboat, travelling the canals with her garden on the roof. The Map of Leaves is inspired by her life by the woods and the water.

About the activity pack

It includes book club-style questions to ponder, instructions for creating a nature weaving and a floral-inspired drawing activity. There’s also a recipe for cheese dumplings and facts about medicinal plants alongside a word search, jokes and further reading recommendations.
