Quirky, outrageously funny fiction for kids aged 8+

Readers of all ages will be laughing out loud with The Orphans of St Halibut's by Sophie Wills, plus an accompanying activity pack which we created for Parrot Street subscribers in January 2021.

“This book is very silly! We love the quirky humour, David Tazzyman’s amazing illustrations, and especially the brilliant and brave cast of characters.

Life has been perfect ever since the orphans of St Halibut's Home for Waifs and Strays buried their matron - don't look like that, it was an accident! Tig, Stef, Herc and Pamela just have to make sure nobody finds out they're on their own. But stolen cakes, major explosions and a very grumpy goat mean that things go from peachy to spectacularly out of hand...

Sophie Wills has worked in a boarding kennels, at a hardware store, a doctor's surgery and two publishing houses. She once performed Gangnam Style at Number 10 Downing Street! The Orphans of St Halibut's is her first novel.

The activity pack includes stickers, book club-style questions to ponder, a recipe for chocolate honey cake and instructions for a fun science experiment. There’s also word puzzles and a sweet treat drawing activity, alongside jokes, facts and further reading recommendations.

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