FROM THE WINNER OF THE GUARDIAN CHILDREN'S FICTION PRIZE. A thrilling animal adventure for fans of Roald Dahl, David Walliams and Katherine Rundell


Great read - dealing with an uncomfortable topic without becoming too much for the reader. As for favourite characters it’s hard to choose - the main humans Kester and Polly are wonderful but the animal cast The Stag Wolf Cub & co steal the show. Thought-provoking and fast-paced.

KS2. Dystopian future. Animals. Adventure and pace.

This is a good book and it is scary to think how the world would be without animals or having to live in extremes like this through a pandemic. My favourite character was the cockroach. I recommend this book to year5.

Timely read - a global infection has caused widespread loss of life and the culling of all animals due to potential cross-infection. When Kester finds he can talk to a cockroach, his imprisoned life changes forever. A lively adventure taking Kester and a small group of animals to look for his scientist father and an answer.
