Product description

The last stag. The last whale. The last kid who gives a damn. Love nature? Want magic? Make this your first stop. Imagine a world where animals are extinct. Think it’s too awful to imagine? Kester lives in that horrible place. No birds. No bugs. No dogs or horses. No whales or pandas or tigers. All completely gone – or are they? Kester is locked in a home for troubled kids when he meets the talking pigeons and the bossy cockroach. At first, he thinks he’s finally gone a bit mad. (This world isn’t much fun for kids either.) But the animals need Kester’s help to save the last hidden wild place where they cling on. Can he save the animals – and the humans – and the whole world?

  • Piers Torday’s sublime, thrilling saga of a world in peril
  • Winner of the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize 2014
  • Witty and immersive fantasy with an ecological message
  • “Darkly comic and hugely inventive” – Eoin Colfer
