David Thorpe lives in the mountains not far from the beaches of beautiful mid-Wales. He spends his time wondering. When he was smaller he noticed that most adults seemed to have forgotten what it was like to be a child and vowed to try not to do the same himself. Previously he has worked on the sewers, written comics, published eco-books and been a journalist. If you want to make him happy you can help to save the tiger from extinction.Review:
"A stunningly clever novel." Amanda Craig, The Times"[A] commendable first novel... there is vigour and vitality in Hybrids." Financial Times"What singles out Hybrids is its well-crafted characters and finely spun tension. It's an impressive debut and clearly demonstrates why it beat nearly 900 other manuscripts to win a HarperCollins/Saga magazine writing competition. I certainly look forward to seeing what other ideas David Thorpe has to explore in the future." Bookseller's Choice, The Bookseller."Thorpe creates an inventive dystopian world." Books for Keeps"I thought that this book was a masterpiece. The book is fast paced, and it interacts perfectly with the modern world. I recommend it to everybody. It is a five-star book!" 12-year-old reviewer for Redhouse
