NEW releases in 2023 from Parakeet Books

The Bullock Cart

The Bullock Cart published in June 2023

"The cart waited impatiently in the gully and begged me to sneak out noiselessly"

The forbidden bullock cart is calling to the young girl. What a thrill.

The exciting tale of a small girl who climbs onto the forbidden bullock cart. She’s mighty! She’s a braveheart! She’s... fallen off! This lyrical story from debut children’s author Arti Jain is peculiar, scary, funny and brilliant. The spare, dark yet comical artwork by Tanmay Acharya is such a treat. This is a very special book.

Crooked Witch Soup

Crooked Witch Soup published in June 2023

"The witch had a scarf that was orange, blue and black. With long cornrowed braids that swept over her back"

Victoria Bain concocts powerful alchemy in this magical story. But where is the witch's spell book? Or is it a cook book? Victoria’s artwork is fresh and unusual, using dusky pencil on a tonal background with colourful splashes of bright collage.

Paper Boats

Paper Boats published in June 2023

Aadi flies to visit his sparkle-eyed Nanamma, but it’s raining. A LOT. And Aadi is bored bored bored! Debut children’s author Devjani Bodepudi spins a waterlogged yarn of grandmothers with tricks up their sleeves and clouds with angry kings in their linings! Sumptuous, luscious, vibrant artwork from Anushka Bansal make this a delightful read for children up to seven years old.

My Girl

My Girl published in September 2023

Girls are wild and crazy and free. They are funny, fabulous and feisty. Girls are bursting with everything. They write codes and symphonies... They also stand on tables. So their dress might be pretty but they're not just a princess!

Parents of girls will totally relate to this stomping poem. This is a love letter to girls by Sheju Adiyatiparambil-John and Judy Skidmore who say that girls are so much more than a pretty dress and a bow in their hair.Still very much in production so we don't have any images yet! But we post them here and in our blog so sign up for updates if you want to see this book in progress.

Please note if you pre-order this book it will be delivered in September 2023
