The Dog Runner
by Bren MacDibble
Perfect for KS2 & KS3
‘We’re gonna starve if we stay here, Emery said. ‘If we’re gonna go, best go now.’
And he said it like going was something easy. Like all we have to do is walk away.
Ella and her brother, Emery, are alone in a city that’s starving to death. If they are going to survive, they must get away, up-country, to find Emerey’s mum. But how can two kids travel such big distances across a dry, barren and dangerous landscape?
From the author of ‘How to Bee’, an intense and thrilling adventure with an important environmental message, set in an all-too-possible dystopian future Australia.
Bren MacDibble has an incredible skill in writing stories that are not only full of adventure but also shine a light on the environmental issues we face in our world today.
