In a world where animals no longer exist, twelve-year-old Kester Jaynes sometimes feels like he hardly exists either. Locked away in a home for troubled children, he’s told there’s something wrong with him. So when he meets a flock of talking pigeons, Kester thinks he’s finally gone a bit mad. But the animals have something to say…
The pigeons fly Kester to a wild place where the last creatures in the land have survived. A wise stag needs Kester’s help, and together they must embark on a great journey. The animals saved Kester Jaynes. But can Kester save the animals?
‘It is with great pride that we embark on the 10th Children’s Book Prize,’ says James Daunt, Managing Director of Waterstones. ‘Our children’s departments have always been the heart of our bookshops, for there of course book lovers are made. In the Prize we capture the passion and engagement of our booksellers as they champion emerging children’s authors and illustrators.’
The winners will be announced at an evening reception at Waterstones Piccadilly, Europe’s largest bookshop, on Thursday 3rd April.
If you’d like to read the book, you can, of course, buy it from Waterstones.
