‘A rare and magical book. I didn’t want it to end.’ – Bill Bryson

A pangolin’s tongue is longer than its body. It keeps it furled in a nifty pouch near the hip

A swift flies 200,000 miles in its lifetime. That’s far enough to get to the moon and back – then back to the moon.

There’s a fable that storks deliver babies. In fact, the Nazis used them to air-drop propaganda.

Each of these animals is extraordinary. And each of them may soon disappear from the earth.

A lavishly illustrated compendium of the staggering lives of some of the world’s most endangered animals, The Golden Mole is a chance to be awestruck and lovestruck – to fall for the likes of the wondrous Pygmy Hippo, the seahorse, the narwhal and, as astonishing and endangered as them all, the human.
