An incredible, heart-breaking debut Urgle is a gripping, imaginative debut, with a world comparable to Patrick Ness's Chaos Walking trilogy. Heart-warming but completely gripping action-adventure for readers of 10+.
In addition to our Lovereading expert opinion for Urgle a small number of our readers were lucky enough to be invited to review this title. Here's a taster....'Urgle is really good because it’s full of action and adventure. I also like it because everything is described so clearly yet you can still use your imagination and put your own twist on it. Boys and girls please read this book..'.

Urgle by Meaghan McIsaac
'When the next baby is dropped, I will leave to make room for him. He will take my place.' Abandoned at birth, the Brothers of the Ikkuma Pit know no mothers. They fend for themselves, each training their Little Brother to survive - until they grow into men and it's time for their Leaving Day. No boy knows what's beyond the forest. No Brother who left has ever come back. Until now.
Outside the Pit, danger is ever present. Finding his Little Brother Cubby is Urgle’s only goal, but this new world may have a different destiny in mind....
