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...

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.
