    Katherine Rundell's Rooftoppers was shortlisted for 2014's CILIP Carnegie Medal.

    Everyone thinks Sophie is an orphan, especially as there were no other recorded female survivors in the shipwreck from where she was found. Sophie, however, is adamant she saw her mother waving at her amidst the wreckage...

    Sophie's guardian tells her it is almost impossible for her mother to still be alive, but with that glimmer of possibility, and the threat of being sent to an orphanage hanging over her head, Sophie flees to Paris on a search for her mother. Having evaded the French authorities, Sophie meets Matteo and his network of rooftoppers - urchins who live in the sky. Together, they scour the city for Sophie's mother...

    Written by Katherine Rundell and proudly presented to you by FaberShop, Rooftoppers is an enchanting tale for young readers aged 9 and over.

  • The Wolf Wilder

    Katherine Rundell

    Product Code: AUVOV
    Paperback 9 years +
    Feodora and her mother live in the snowbound woods of Russia, in a house full of food and fireplaces. Ten minutes away, in a ruined chapel, lives a pack of wolves. Feodora's mother is a wolf wilder, and Feo is a wolf wilder in training. A wolf wilder is the opposite of an animal tamer: it is a person who teaches tamed animals to fend for themselves, and to fight and to run, and to be wary of humans. When the murderous hostility of the Russian Army threatens her very existence, Feo is left with no option but to go on the run. What follows is a story of revolution and adventure, about standing up for the things you love and fighting back. And, of course, wolves.
