An enchanting fantasy adventure story for kids aged 8+

Head to magical, atmospheric Bigdeepby in The Mooncatcher's Rescue by Karen Lamb, plus an accompanying activity pack, which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in February 2023.

Pirates, ghosts and magic combine in this celebration of both friendship and our relationship with the natural world. We love the funny characters, touching story and beautiful illustrations.


Something is stirring in Bigdeepby. A legend is rising and magic is brewing. Can River save the ghost of Mona Brightly and defeat the dastardly pirate Dashbuckle? A magical adventure about ghosts, pirates and the power of friendship.

Karen Lamb was born by the sea and lives in the North West of England. She has worked as an illustrator, animator and puppet-maker. The Mooncatcher's Rescue is her first book.

The activity pack includes an exclusive signed book plate, book club-style questions to ponder and a recipe for gingerbread pirates. You'll also make origami lucky stars, solve our wordfill puzzle and draw a monster living in the Bigdeepby pond, alongside jokes, facts and further reading recommendations.

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

We dispatch orders Monday - Friday.

  • Standard UK Royal Mail delivery £2.99 (free on bookshop orders over £25)
  • UK Express delivery also available from £5.50

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.
