The Lovereading4Kids comment
Brilliantly imagined, the futuristic city of Kai-ro forms a vivid backdrop to the thrilling story of one boy’s fight against the ancient forces of darkness. It is a compelling story by an author at the height of his storytelling powers. Graham Marks says that the book was born out of the lasting presence of the Egyptian Gods and his two trips, one to the Egyptian section in the British Museum and the other to the Great Pyramids in Egypt. His imaginings as a consequence of his ‘meetings’ with a statue of a dog, of the great pharaohs and Cairo itself gave him a mind full of ideas and beliefs that have ended up in this terrific adventure.
A piece of passion from the Editor:
When I first picked up this amazing book I couldn’t stop reading it. I love the mysterious world of the future and the way it’s linked with the ancient Egyptian past. And Stretch Wilson is a true hero, caught in the epic battle between good and evil.
Kai-ro by Graham Marks
Stretch Wilson’s world is a hard place. All he has, since his father was taken as slave labour, is his dog, Bone – until the fateful day when he discovers something extraordinary, deep in the heart of Blook’s Mount, a gigantic pile of ancient rubbish and waste. Something that will change his life forever. He doesn’t know it but Stretch is the only person who can stop the evil that lives in Kai-ro from taking control, for eternity.
"A brilliantly imagined epic adventure" John Newman, Newham Bookshop
