Can I read your books aloud online?


If you are a teacher, you may read aloud individual chapters at a time, that are not recorded, via a closed virtual learning environment for pupils only.

I will be reading some chapters of my books aloud via my social media channels during the UK Corona Virus outbreak.

Please don’t read whole books aloud in one session or record any of your readings. Thank you!


Where can I find classroom resources for your books?


There are some excellent free classroom resources for “The Last Wild” provided by Sustainable Learning

I will be putting up more here for all books very shortly, watch this space.

Teachers could sign up to CLPE’s excellent Power of Reading scheme and get a whole teaching sequence based on “The Last Wild”.



Do you visit schools?


Yes. As I am based in London, most of my visits take place in the Southeast. But budget and time permitting, I do try and visit as many schools across the UK as I can. For more information on how to arrange a visit, the sessions I offer, and fees, please contact:

Victoria Rontaler at Rontaler PR & Events.



Will there be another book in “The Last Wild” series?


Not for the time being. “The Wild Beyond”, the third book in the series, is the conclusion of Kester, Polly, Aida and all their animal friends’ adventures as I see it for now. I firmly believe that those left at the end of that story have very exciting futures ahead of them! But never say never. There might be a fourth book one day, you never know…
