'A fantastic example of how a book for children can be serious without preaching ... a sobering parable about our attitude to the natural world' Gillian Cross, author.
'Standout winner ... effortlessly holds his readers' attention' Julia Eccleshare, Guardian.
'The definition of a good read' The Bookbag.
'A page-turner' The Telegraph.
An excellent, punchy adventure tale with vivid characters and an impassioned eco message.
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.
Full of suspense without ever sacrificing warmth.
A darkly comic and hugely inventive adventure ... it could be the next big thing.
Gripping, original and memorable.
A magnetic adventure ... find yourself glued like tar to this satisfying, spine-tingling book.
Wildly inventive, moving and gripping.
A must-read: brings to mind the smarts and silliness of Roald Dahl.
Inventive, with laughs, tears and cliffhangers.
I haven't read a book this good and interesting since The Hunger Games ... an edge-of-your-seat fast-paced read.
An amazing story
The sequel had better come soon.
