This is a story about a boy named Kester. He is extraordinary, but he doesn't know that yet. All he knows, at this very moment, is this:

1. There is a flock of excited pigeons in his bedroom.

2. They are talking to him.

3. His life will never be quite the same again...

A captivating animal adventure destined to be loved by readers of all ages.

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.
