Powerful historical adventure for readers aged 12+

Older readers will be fascinated by Wild Song by Candy Gourlay, which comes with an accompanying activity pack, which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in January 2024.

Wild Song is an extraordinary adventure story and a powerful depiction of an historical event that few readers will be familiar with, but which has so much contemporary resonance."
~Sarah

The year is 1904. Luki has lived a tribal life in the mountains of the Philippines. Now she's growing up, she is expected to become a wife and a mother, but Luki isn't ready to give up her dream to become a warrior.

When her tribe are offered a journey to America to be part of the St. Louis World's Fair, Luki will discover that the land of opportunity does not share its possibilities equally . . .

Candy Gourlay grew up in the Philippines. Her novels for young readers have been published to acclaim and listed for many prizes such as the Carnegie Medal and the Guardian Children’s Book Prize. She lives in London with her family, where she wages war on the snails in her garden.

The activity pack includes stickers, book club-style questions to ponder and a welcome note from Candy Gourlay. There’s also a logic puzzle to solve and a recipe for delicious homemade ice cream, alongside jokes and further reading recommendations.

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