WINNER OF THE GUARDIAN CHILDREN'S FICTION PRIZE 2014.

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

Twelve-year-old Kester thought he had discovered the last wild animals in the land. He thought his adventure was over. He was wrong.

Below the sparkling city of Premium, deep underground, a dark wild remains: animals who believe the time is right to rise up against their human enemies.

And soon Kester realises: he is the only one who can stop them.

Kester Jaynes saved the animals. Can he save the humans too?

In the media
An excellent, punchy adventure tale with vivid characters and an impassioned eco message.

The Financial Times

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

Full of suspense without ever sacrificing warmth.

Katherine Rundell

A darkly comic and hugely inventive adventure ... it could be the next big thing.
