Agatha Parrot and the Mushroom Boy

By Kjartan Poskitt


This story is about the time I was watching 'Sing Wiggle and Shine' on TV (the worst talent show ever WAHOO love it love it) but my evil brother James nicked the TV remote so he could watch football instead. Don't worry, I got my own back! All it took was a giant yellow cake, some fairies, a school fete and a big sofa cushion.

Year of Publication


"'Agatha Parrot is the most exciting new character I've seen since Mr Gum!' (Leah Thaxton, Senior Publisher.) 'I would like to tell you about a book I have read. It is called Agatha Parrot and the Floating Head and is written by Kjartan Poskitt and is very funny. It isn't out till August but I got sent a sneak preview copy and I read it in two days. It was really funny and very interesting. It is a real pageturner. I am 9 and I would recommend it for 7 or 8 year olds upwards.' (Martha Eleni Pack, meandmybigmouth.)"
