The animals are the stars of The Last Wild. You almost don’t notice the lack of humans in this book as the animals are marvellous characters with amusing personalities. Plus when we do get to meet humans, they’re not all that nice.

Review – The Impossible Boy by Ben Brooks

“Adults always pretend the things they do are terribly complicated and unknowable. For the most part, they’re walking into rooms and pressing buttons of one sort or another.” Best friendsOleg and Emma are clever, they have us sussed. They do something incredible and create an Impossible Boy. Reading about what happens next will be the highlight of your day. The crazy shenanigans that ensue are random and satisfying. The tender, sweet way that family and tough real life issues are discussed and portrayed is marvellous.
