A spellbinding adventure story, perfect for kids aged 8+
Head into a charming and magical world with The Spell Tailors by James Nicol plus an accompanying activity pack, which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in October 2022.
“The Spell Tailors is a gorgeous book that represents fantasy writing at it's very best. It combines brilliant, empathetic characters and a gripping mystery in an historical setting with an important message about mass production that will resonate with young readers.”
About the book
Hen dreams of becoming a spell tailor, stitching magic into clothing like his beloved Nana. But thanks to new factories, spell tailors are struggling. His Uncle Bertie’s fancy shop has shut down, and when he, Aunt Lucia and stuck-up cousin Connie move in, it’s a disaster for all the family. Then Hen stumbles upon a new kind of stitch – one which causes Nana and Bertie to ban him from sewing. What is the power of the stitch that can sew memories into clothes – and could it be the very thing to save them all?
