This is the legendary Mooncalf, whose arrival has been foretold since the dawn of time. According to a dream passed down from animal to animal, if the calf dies, a great terribleness will come - rising seas, a plague, skies raining down fire, the end of all things... and Little Hare vows to persuade all the animals to protect Mooncalf, whatever the cost.
But it's easier said than done, and soon Little Hare realises that he is the only one who can save the world... A stunning prequel to the award-winning, bestselling The Last Wild trilogy, touching on timely themes of climate change, friendship, and above all, hope.

This is a wonderful novel, full of thought and heart - what fans of Piers Torday will recognise and welcome. It’s an any-age book really, and all ages should read it - for its message and for its feeling. Be prepared to be scared, and moved, and amused, entertained - there are lots of laughs. It’s also very beautifully presented. Sheer joy. Such a welcome book.
