The Lastling, Paperback

The Lastling Paperback



Paris is on a trek in the Himalayas with her uncle and her uncle's friends.

On the way they come across a young Tibetan monk, Tahr, who reluctantly joins their party as his protector has died in an accident.

As the trek progresses, Paris realizes the true reason for the journey - her uncle and his friends are a strange, gourmet dining club, dedicated to hunting down and eating the rarest possible animals.

So when they discover a young yeti-like creature, who is very nearly human herself, Tahr convinces Paris that they have a duty to protect her, come what may. *Dramatically told in a lyrical style by Philip Gross, a well-known poet for both adults and children.
