A treasure trove of vanishing wonders from Katherine Rundell.

The Golden Mole and Other Living Treasures is a lavishly illustrated bestiary of some of the world’s most extraordinary animals.

A swift flies two million kilometres in its lifetime – that’s far enough to get to the moon and back twice over, and then once more to the moon. A giraffe was once given to the King of France; she marched through the streets, dressed in the finest couture raincoat Paris could produce. A pangolin keeps its tongue furled in a pouch by its hip, a Greenland shark can live five hundred years, and a wombat once inspired a love poem.

‘A witty, intoxicating paean to Earth’s wondrous creatures.’ Observer

‘Rundell’s pen is gold-tipped.’ The Sunday Times
