    In a world where animals no longer exist, 12-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 and a bossy cockroach, 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, joined along the way by an over-enthusiastic wolf cub, a spoilt show cat, a dancing harvest mouse, and a stubborn girl named Polly.

    Zauberhaft, herzzerreißend und wunderbar humorvoll. In einer Welt, in der keine Tiere mehr existieren, kommt sich auch der 12-jährige Kester manchmal vor wie der Letzte seiner Art. Zumindest in dem Mentorium für Problemkinder, in dem er lebt und wo alle so tun, als sei mit ihm etwas nicht in Ordnung. Als er dann auf einen Schwarm sprechender Tauben trifft, denkt Kester, jetzt werde er völlig verrückt. Aber diese Tiere haben ihm etwas mitzuteilen...
