Description

A hugely inventive adventure.
--Eoin Colfer, New York Times bestselling author of the Artemis Fowl series

In a world where animals are slowly fading into extinction, twelve-year-old Kester Jaynes feels as if he hardly exists either. He's been locked away in a home for troubled children and is unable to speak a word. Then one night, a flock of talking pigeons and a bossy cockroach come to help him escape, and he discovers that he can speak--to them. And the animals need him. Only Kester, with the aid of a stubborn, curious girl named Polly, can help them survive.

The animals saved Kester. But can he save them?

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)

"Combines a great fondness for animals with an appreciation of the freakish.... The reserved narrative tone and tender yet peculiar view of animals give this piece its own offbeat flavor."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Alternately somber, thrilling, and silly."
--Publishers Weekly
