Publisher's Summary

For Will and his mother, going to Indonesia isn't just a holiday. It's an escape, a new start, a chance to put things behind them - things like the death of Will's father. And to begin with, it seems to be just what they both needed. But then Oona, the elephant Will is riding on the beach, begins acting strangely, shying away from the sea. And that's when the tsunami comes crashing in, and Oona begins to run. Except that when the tsunami is gone, Oona just keeps on running.
With nothing on his back but a shirt and nothing to sustain him but a bottle of water, Will must learn to survive deep in the jungle. Luckily, though, he's not completely alone...
He's got Oona.

Superb

This has kept the family of adults and two girls (11 and 9) enthralled through some long holiday car journeys. A sad start but absolutely gripping in the jungle.

The Book You Can't Put Down!

What made the experience of listening to Running Wild the most enjoyable?

As Michael Morpurgo is so descriptive with his writing and narration, you become incredibly involved in the story. Even after the book is finished, you feel empowered to go protect all of the rainforests! A brilliant read!

Have you listened to any of Michael Morpurgo’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This is my favourite book to date, I am just about to start my fourth Michael Morpurgo novel.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book will have you experience all the emotions, but definitely, will leave you smiling!
