Ready for an Adventure


Our gorgeous author, Abbi-Jean Reid, died in winter 2022.

In her memory Parakeet Books and Little Brown are donating as many of her books as possible to the Free Books Campaign.

For every copy of Ready for an Adventure sold we will donate a copy to the campaign.

About The Free Books Campaign

The Free Books Campaign is dedicated to getting books by authors of colour - who are typically underrepresented in the publishing industry and education system - to those who are unable to access them, by donating books to individuals, families, youth clubs, community centres, charities and schools.

In just four years they’ve donated 8,000+ brand new books to their service users, partnered with the @MarcusRashford Bookclub, built an online community of over 7.5k people and started their annual entirely-free literature festival.

The next Free Books Campaign Festival is 19-21 July 2024 in Hackney.

About Ready for an Adventure

Whether skin is black or white or fair or dark, usually it is all one colour. You might notice that Gabby has white patches on her skin. This is called vitiligo. Vitiligo is not dangerous. It’s not catching. It’s just there. Anyway, this story is not about vitiligo. This story is about Gabby and Molly having an adventure...

Best friends and sisters, Gabby and Molly have got a free day to do what they please... Great let’s have an adventure! This gorgeous story is by debut author, Abbi-Jean Reid. The delicious artwork is by Bhumika Jangid

“Essential learning without feeling didactic. A joyful, funny adventure with beautiful illustrations. Children will love it and I did too!”

Matilda Tristram, writer and director on many children’s animations including Peppa Pig

About Little, Brown

Abbi-Jean's last job was at Little Brown.

Charlie King, MD of Little, Brown Book Group, said: “Abbi-Jean was a wonderful person and the very best of colleagues. She was a skilled marketer who made a terrific impression during her time at Little, Brown, but much more than that she was a truly special human being: someone who had a uniquely positive, warm approach to work and to life."
