9780007199648: Forest of the Pygmies

From one of the world’s best loved storytellers, the trilogy that began with City of the Beasts comes to a thrilling climax.

Alexander Cold knows all too well his grandmother Kate is never far from an adventure. When National Geographic commissions her to write an article about the first elephant-led safaris in Africa, they head – with Nadia Santos and the magazine's photography crew – to the blazing, red plains of Kenya. Days into the tour, a Catholic missionary approaches the camp in search of his companions who have mysteriously disappeared. Kate, Alexander, Nadia, and their team, agreeing to aid the rescue, enlists the help of a local pilot to lead them to the swampy forests of Ngoubé. There they discover a clan of Pygmies who unveil a harsh and surprising world of corruption, slavery, and poaching.

Alexander and Nadia, entrusting the magical strengths of Jaguar and Eagle, their totemic animal spirits, launch a spectacular and precarious struggle to restore freedom and return leadership to its rightful hands.

The final instalment of Isabel Allende's celebrated trilogy soars with radiant settings, spirits, beings – and the transformation of an extraordinary friendship.

Review:

Praise for City of the Beasts:

'Written with Allende's characteristic verve, City of the Beasts is the kind of accomplishment to show young readers that there's more to life than Harry Potter.' Literary Review

'A vivid fable… Allende's prose soars' Guardian

'Marvellous, marvel-filled… Beautifully written and utterly entrancing' Independent on Sunday

Praise for Kingdom of the Golden Dragon:

‘Allende again proves her talent for evoking exotic landscapes, spinning tall stories and weaving seductive magic.’ Sunday Times

'This spellbinding novel, like its predecessor, is storytelling at its best' Mail on Sunday

About the Author:

Isabel Allende was born in 1942, and is the niece of Salvador Allende, who went on to become famous as the elected President of Chile deposed in a CIA-backed coup. She worked as a journalist, playwright and children’s writer in Chile until 1974 and then in Venezuela until 1984. Her first novel for adults, ‘The House of the Spirits’, was published in Spanish in 1982, beginning life as a letter to her dying grandfather. It was an international sensation, and ever since all her books have been acclaimed and adored in numberless translations worldwide.
