Last Zoo - review

It is almost impossible to write an original book, not because writers aren't brilliant, but they have to delve into both their own imaginations and those they have read and observed collectively too.

So, enter the bestsellers list young Sam Gayton and long may you stay there, because he has basically re-imagined the way to tell a story with previous nuggets but total awe-inspiring originality too.

Sam is a superb storyteller and can even rap and make children listen and then want to read, that is a real talent.

He was whizzed up by Andersen press and bizarrely stayed literally a few roads away from my home and about 15 mins from our lucky schools that hosted his book events, we wnet to Ursuline where the picture was taken and he met his niece! with her plaster cast...

then we went to Forefield Juniors and had a huge event.

Sam has taken all the snippets of the past, believing in...fairies, unicorns and genies and morphed that into a kaleidoscope of wonder and pure genius that will enthral and entrance new readers.

We meet Pia or Cornucopia as she really is, she looks after the last 2 angels in existence... and they have disappeared... not good...
they are invisible and tiny and can deliver miracles, but without them no miracle can save us and that is bad...

There was a breakdown of relativity, we had a quasi nuclear explosion and the seam was formed, out of it comes all magic and all imaginable and unimaginable creations, some are hybrids cleverly designed and some are well known.

There is a huge amount of knowing humour and adventure here, it is a breathtaking read and I truly hope all avid Magic craving readers devour it. 

There are devices that are just delights, Zephyring, the language of enticing Genies to do their bidden tasks and the need to trim their beards a lot. There are gruesome creatures and plenty of insight into a world we have made going wrong and the need to keep nature and togetherness and magic real. There is a hint of love and that is just enough, the key thing here is if you are a fan of quality Disney type and Manga and Potter, then you must read this... It has the charm, the characters and the action and plot to keep you entranced.

The Seam is not able to be dealt with by adults, they get their minds fried or frayed... but some children can enter and bring out what they discover from their imaginations, things they want to be real, become real, but they need to learn how to care for them or problems will occur...

BIG problems...  and ones with time running out.

The Last Zoo works on all levels, it's a real romp, full of colour, excitement and great characters and events, it's also very cleverly told, so if you have an inquisitive mind, there are issues you an dwell on. Mostly it's about reimaginaging wonders and magic and what could be...

It works for any age from 7 up as we found with the amazing events, it also works for adults as I and the staff know...

I've about 4 signed copies and a few of Sam's other superb books, as ever Paypal me tonythebook@live.co.uk
