The Talking Parcel by Gerald Durrell


Moon carrot pie, moon carrot pie. It’ll liven you up, bring to a gleam to your eye. Oh, a cow in a manger, a pig in a sty, they all love their slices of moon carrot pie.’

When Peter, Simon and their cousin Penelope discover a parcel which talks in two different voices, they soon find out that in this parcel there lives a rainbow coloured parrot and a little golden spider. This is the beginning of a fantastic story, which every word is written to perfection. It is for both boys and girls, which is even better. The age range for this book is 9-11 years old.

A fine combination of pertinent detail and powerful fansy’.
