children's middlegrade fantasy with sci-fi elements. almost 13-year-old boy discovers he can talk to animals and then is tasked with saving them and the last wild place with the help of his scientist dad and by uncovering the truth about the disease that has brought about the collapse of society and those who have since taken power. I found myself skipping the descriptive bits to get to the dialogue parts (either it is a little slow, or I am just impatient right now).

AMAZING! Loved every minute. Fast-paced adventure with a heart.

I read The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe too and this really didn't reflect well. This resembled the Last Battle a lot in the obviousness of the allegory and frankly telegraphed what was going to happen with the various characters, I honestly felt underwhelmed by it. Possibly I'm not the right age for this but it left me wanting more and frankly not interested in finding out if it was a series.

Four children are sent to a house after the blitz. First Larry finds the strange library door and is disbelieved, then Evelyn finds it and after all four of them find the world that is Folio, where fact and fiction battle to the death and a mysterious magician lurks in the background.

I wanted to like it but I found it way too obvious.

An enjoyable eco-adventure set in a future England with strong human and animal characters: Kester Jaynes, Polly, the "General" cockroach, pigeons, the stag, a wolf-cub, a harvest mouse and more. Kester can speak to animals, but not people. Polly is not afraid to speak for all. Together, they become ambassadors for the rights of animals and humans, braving dangers and opening the way to truth. A map helps readers follow the characters' travels. I look forward to reading the sequel.
