About the Author:

Nilanjana Roy spent most of her adult life writing about humans before realizing that animals were much more fun; The Wildings is her first novel. She writes a regular column for the Business Standard and the International Herald Tribune, and some of her stories for children have been published in Scholastic's Spooky Stories, Science Fiction Stories and Be Witched. She lives in Delhi with two cats and her husband.

Review:

A stylish, bloody, literary addition, set in India and already a considerable critical success there. Rich in cat telepathy and shuddery feral madness, it is ideal for those who need stronger meat than the fantasy-by-numbers Warrior Cat series Guardian Filled with a large cast of fascinating and unusual animal characters... this is a real page-turner, and the cats' eye view of the world is very cleverly maintained... a feline Watership Down Lovereading4kids I found The Wildings gripping, and the author had a good grip on the life of cats, really making it seem accurate and realistic from a feline's point of view. I especially enjoyed the idea of communication through whiskers, and how strength was all about how much control and power you had over your 'projection'. You will imagine yourself as a cat before you know it! SCOOP magazine I absolutely loved this book and I'm so glad that I read it In Need of a Read (blog) A captivating Indian adventure... The Wildings will take you off to exotic places full of felines and adventure... what more could you want? Catworld Nilanjana Roy's stories are a delight to read Salman Rushdie The voices of @nilanjanaroy's THE WILDINGS are as compelling as the action Imogen Russell Williams Recommend it? Absolutely Luna's Little Library (blog) Nilanjana Roy's writing is really strong and it looks to be a great start to a new series Sarah's Chapter (blog) This was like being a little kid again...I definitely recommend this book. The Whispering of the Page (blog) This is not fluffy stuff or childlike in the least, it is mythical and in the best traditions of myths and legends, it has an edge that modern tales for children often lack Screen Wipe (blog) Exciting, touching and thrilling -- Sidney Greenslade Lovereading4kids Amazing and incredible -- Toby Little Lovereading4kids A must-read... Fantastic! -- Sam Harper Lovereading4kids One of those unassuming treasures that have the power to grip children. Adults will also not be immune to its lure... As with all the classics, this is a book that has to be bought again before handing on to the next generation, because the original has fallen apart from so much use Strange Alliances (blog) Imagine Harry Potter. But with cats No Mourners, No Funerals (blog) A vivid read The Times of India A few pages into Nilanajana Roy's The Wildings, you'll wish you had whiskers and could mew... a page turner and a charming read DNA India Highly compelling... an enjoyable read New Welsh Review If you're going to read just one book this year, make it this one. I don't know where to start with The Wildings, reading this book was such an amazing experience... The Wildings is one of those books you can read and love at any age... I'd recommend this page-turner in a heartbeat. Stick it on your TBR if you haven't already, and if you're not a cat-lover, be prepared to fall in love with Southpaw and the gang anyway Sugar Quills (blog) The Wildings was an excellent read that I enjoyed immensely. It's place on the 2017 Waterstones Children's Book Prize shortlist is well deserved, and I recommend it to anyone who isn't squeamish about hunting a few rats Fairy Tales Again (blog) Amazing... you should go buy it right now Charlie CP (blog)
