** Shortlisted for the Waterstones and Foyles Book of the Year **
The world is more astonishing, more miraculous and more wonderful than our wildest imaginings.
Bursting with breathtaking illustrations and exquisite text courtesy of former Waterstones Children’s Book Prize winner Katherine Rundell, The Golden Mole highlights the extraordinary abilities and stories associated with a range of remarkable creatures in all too real danger of dying out.
In The Golden Mole, Katherine Rundell takes us on a globe-spanning tour of the world’s strangest and most awe-inspiring animals, including pangolins, wombats, lemurs and seahorses. But each of these animals is endangered. And so, this most passionately persuasive and sharply funny book is also an urgent, inspiring clarion call: to treasure and act – to save nature’s vanishing wonders, before it is too late.
