Endling #1: The Last

Author: Katherine Applegate Narrator: Lisa Flanagan Release Date: May 2018

First Katherine Applegate thrilled readers with the action-packed Animorphs series. Then she stole our hearts with the award-winning The One and Only Ivan. Now she takes us on an unforgettable journey in this first book of an epic middle grade series! Byx is the youngest member of her dairne pack. Believed to possess remarkable abilities, her mythical doglike species has been hunted to near extinction in the war-torn kingdom of Nedarra. After her pack is hunted down and killed, Byx fears she may be the last of her species. The Endling. So Byx sets out to find safe haven, and to see if the legends of other hidden dairnes are true. Along the way, she meets new allies-both animals and humans alike-who each have their own motivations for joining her quest. And although they begin as strangers, they become their own kind of family-one that will ultimately uncover a secret that may threaten every creature in their world. Building upon the success of her critically acclaimed novels such as The One and Only Ivan, Crenshaw, and Wishtree, while also returning to her action-packed fantasy roots of Animorphs, the Endling series is Katherine Applegate at her finest. With its enthralling characters, unique setting, and gripping adventure, this series is the perfect next read for fans of Rick Riordan, Brian Jacques, and Tui T. Sutherland.

Erst verschwindet der Fernseher, dann gibt es zum Abendbrot nur noch Cornflakes ... Aber plötzlich taucht ein Kater namens Crenshaw auf - so groß, dass man sich bei ihm anlehnen kann. Außerdem kann Crenshaw sprechen und ist unsichtbar ... Katherine Applegate erzählt von der magischen Kraft der Phantasie, die Kinder in schwierigen Lebenssituationen retten kann.
