A novel packed with fun, magic and mayhem for kids aged 5+
This bundle will conjure up giggles and excitement for 5 to 8-year-olds. It contains The Marvellous Granny Jinks and Me by Serena Holly plus an accompanying activity pack, which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in May 2022.
“This is such a fun story with fantastic characters and so much scope for magical activities – it was a very easy choice for our subscription boxes!”~Emily
About the book
When Jada Jinks finds a box of magic tricks in her granny’s flat, she uncovers her granny’s secret dream of becoming a magician.
Jada soon decides that she’s going to help Granny Jinks fulfil her dreams, but one thing stands in her way – her dad, Jonny Jinks, who hates magic!
Will Jada be able to help Granny Jinks pass the auditions for Dalton Green Magic Society, and will she learn some tricks of her own along the way?

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.
