(?   -    ) UK author whose very Young Adult Near Future Dystopian Last Wild sequence comprising The Last Wild (2013), The Dark Wild (2014) and The Wild Beyond (2015) focuses on the attempts of a mute Telepathic boy and his companions to save the last animals at a time when Homo sapiens has come very close to exterminating all other species. There May Be a Castle (2016), a fantasy for younger children, explores similar territory. [JC]
