From the Back Cover:

Twelve-year-old Kester Jaynes thought he had discovered the last wild animals in the land. He thought his adventure was over. He was wrong. Below the sparkling city of Premium, deep underground, a dark wild remains: animals who believe the time is right to rise up against their human enemies. And soon Kester realizes: he is the only one who can stop them. Kester Jaynes saved the animals. Can he save the humans too? The sequel to Piers Torday's The Last Wild takes the adventure from country to city, with all of the first book's excitement, humor, and heart.

PRAISE FOR THE LAST WILD
"A hugely inventive adventure." -- Eoin Colfer

star Alternately somber, thrilling, and silly, filled with eccentric human and animal characters with distinctive voices. That includes Kesteralthough his fellow humans see him as silent, his courage, actions, and growth speak volumes.”Publishers Weekly, starred review
"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)

About the Author:

Piers Torday was born in Northumberland, which is possibly the one part of England where more animals live than people. After working as a producer and writer in theatre, live comedy and TV, he now lives in London – where there are more animals that you might think. The Last Wild is followed by the sequel (and concluding volume) The Dark Wild. You can find out more about Piers and follow his blog at www.pierstorday.co.uk.
