Almost eleven-year-old Sim Paterson’s life is turned upside down when he wakes up one morning mid-Pacific Ocean in a blue caravan. With the assistance of a hot air balloonist and a somewhat faulty prophet Sim and his cat, Mr Black, begin their epic journey home to New Zealand. Along the way, the truth of the wave is revealed and Sim finds himself being chased across the planet by the powerful President King, through cities and scorching deserts, on stormy seas and snowy mountains, towards the East, where his true purpose awaits. Both funny and serious, THE WAVE is a wonderfully inventive and compelling novel that will stay with readers of all ages long after they finish the last page. It will delight fans of Louis Sachar, R. J. Palacio, and Neil Gaiman.
