Praise

Praise for The Last Wild series by Piers Torday

“A hugely inventive adventure.”
—Eoin Colfer, New York Times bestselling author of the Artemis Fowl series
 
“A whimsical yet thoughtful tale that brings to mind the smarts and silliness of Roald Dahl and Norton Juster.” —The New York Post
 
* “Alternately somber, thrilling, and silly, filled with eccentric human and animal characters with distinctive voices.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Should have broad appeal. Recommend this book to readers who like the Books of Ember series by Jeanne DuPrau.”—VOYA
 
“An enchanted adventure with a message of empowerment and hope that ought to sweep readers along.”—Booklist

“A winning combination of science fiction and animal adventure: noble animals fighting for just causes—reminiscent of Brian Jacques’s “Redwall” series.”–School Library Journal

“When ninety-nine pigeons smash through the windows of Kester’s prison and carry him North to the last of the animals…. it’s a moment as thrilling as when James flies off in the Giant Peach. Highly recommended”
The Times (UK)
 
“Combines a great fondness for animals with an appreciation of the freakish…. The reserved narrative tone and tender yet peculiar view of animals give this piece its own offbeat flavor.”—Kirkus Reviews
 
“Splendid stuff.” —Eva Ibbotson
