FROM THE WINNER OF THE GUARDIAN CHILDREN’S FICTION PRIZE

A thrilling animal adventure for fans of Roald Dahl, David Walliams and Katherine Rundell

This is the story of a boy named Kester. He has rescued the last wild animals in the world, and saved his capital city from destruction. But now he must face his greatest challenge yet, because:

1. The only blue whale on the planet has brought news from across the ocean
2. A mysterious steel dome has risen from the Four Towers
3. Out there, somewhere, a brave mouse holds the key to the future…

Publisher Review

The sequel had better come soon. * Observer * An amazing story * The Guardian * Splendid stuff -- Eva Ibbotson I haven't read a book this good and interesting since The Hunger Games ... an edge-of-your-seat fast-paced read. * Guardian Children's website * Inventive, with laughs, tears and cliffhangers. * Sunday Times * A must-read: brings to mind the smarts and silliness of Roald Dahl. * New York Post * Wildly inventive, moving and gripping. -- Frank Cottrell Boyce A magnetic adventure ... find yourself glued like tar to this satisfying, spine-tingling book. -- Samuel H. (aged 10) Gripping, original and memorable. -- Francesca Simon A darkly comic and hugely inventive adventure ... it could be the next big thing. -- Eoin Colfer Full of suspense without ever sacrificing warmth. -- Katherine Rundell Written in vivid and urgent style ... As thrilling as James and the Giant Peach ... The Last Wild may be as critical to the new generation as Tarka the Otter. * The Times * An excellent, punchy adventure tale with vivid characters and an impassioned eco message. * The Financial Times *
