Evie and the Animals by Matt Haig

Eleven-year-old Evie has a talent.  A SUPERTALENT.

A talent that can let her HEAR the thoughts of an elephant, and make friends with a dog and a sparrow.

The only problem is, this talent is dangerous.  VERY dangerous.  That’s what her dad says.

So when she frees the school rabbit from its tiny hutch, she vows to keep her talent a secret.  But after a face-to-face encounter with a lion, things start to go very wrong.  Her dad – and every animal in town – is now in danger.  Evie is determined to save them.  And to find the truth of her own past.  To do that she must battle a mysterious man with a talent more powerful than any other.

As time runs out, she must seek help from the animals, and finally DARE TO BE HERSELF?

Peer & Press Reviews

Evie and the Animals, illustrated with humour and dexterity by Emily Gravett, is on the side of kindness and truthfulness…  Short paragraphs and simple language are charged with warmth and joie de vivre.

Sunday Times

A suspenseful thriller, with a fine balance of peril and poignancy…  Haig is a deeply engaging writer.  This book will appeal to a wide range of readers – not just those who worry about fitting in.

Daily Telegraph

Haig’s exhilarating story has its fair share of thrills and spills but also plenty of important points to make about the interconnectedness of the natural world, environmental degradation, and humankind’s mistreatment of animals.
