    Thirteen-year-old Mau is the only one left after a giant wave sweeps his island village away. But when much is taken, something is returned, and somewhere in the jungle, Daphne - a girl from the other side of the globe - is the sole survivor of a ship destroyed by the same wave.

    "Great content and narration!"
    Overall

    I love most of Terry Pratchett's books but I was happy to find that this one broaches deeper topics that his usual work. Stephen Briggs continues to be a fabulous narrator! Great for adults and children. Inspired profound and thought provoking questions... Highly recommended

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Gaiman’s not just an award-winning author, but a narrator who earns rave reviews – and fields requests from other authors to perform their books, too! Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead....

    "Dark, magical, and fun."
    Overall

    Highly enjoyable modern-day fairytale spoken by the enchanting voice of the author (which makes it all the better).
