The Golden Mole: and Other Living Treasure

Katherine Rundell, Talya Baldwin (illus.)

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

A lavishly illustrated collection of the lives of some of the Earth’s most astounding animals, The Golden Mole is a chance to be awestruck and lovestruck - to reckon with the beauty of the world, its fragility, and its strangeness.
