Toby is a 12-year-old boy who was created in a bunker by a group of scientists who accidentally gave him ears and a tail. They call him a Trilby. He’s not sure what he is; does he have a soul, what does the sun look like, and is there anyone outside the bunker.
The Amazing Adventures of Toby the Trilby by Angela Castillo is a heartwarming tale that will appeal to readers of all ages, although it’s intended for teens and young adults. The author’s descriptions, setting and characters, as Toby sets out on the adventure of his young life, will make you think about the meaning of life in ways you probably never thought possible.
