Illustrated by David Tazzyman

Part of the Agatha Parrot Series

Agatha Parrot and the Mushroom Boy Synopsis

Agatha Parrot is the most exciting and hilarious comedy series since Mr Gum! But don't take our word for it . . . take hers! Helloooo! This story is about the time I was watching SING WIGGLE ANDSHINE 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. Oh, and Dad ended up with his toenails painted, so does that all make sense to you? It will do when you've read this book ha ha wicked! Hope you like it, and thanks for reading this BLURB! Written by the hottest new prospect in children's books, Kjartan Poskitt, and illustrated by the artistic genius behind Andy Stanton's Mr Gum, David Tazzyman, Agatha Parrot is more brilliant than you could possibly imagine. Seriously - Try to imagine it. Nope, not even close. Anyway, it's the funnest of funny children's books.

Agatha Parrot and the Mushroom Boy Press Reviews

'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.)
