ON THE BRINK OF EXTINCTION (Book Review by Lochlan, 11 yrs old)

I have finished ‘On The Brink Of Extinction’ by W.M. Wiltshire. After finishing the book I can confidently say that it was amazing! There are so many plot twists, and you have to know, I LOVE those. This book showed life from the point of view of an animal. I have never read a book that has done this before. It really showed how terrifying humans can be. This book was probably one of my favorites; there is definitively enough action to keep even a Marvel fan like myself hooked. In my opinion, this book truly shines near the end because I thought it had a perfect ending; it resolved everything and still leaves you wanting more.


The title of this book is dire however the story within is a tender adventure. I found the main characters to be endearing and accurately described. The book entails a love story and adventure to the promise land away from Humans. Their journey takes the reader through the Canadian back country including the “Badlands”. I found the story rich in detail and plot. Consider the content appropriate for Grades 6 and up.

If you'd like to purchase a replica of one of the heroes in this story, I have found the following sites that also support ecosystems, wildlife conservation, and education.
