A Wild Child's Guide to Endangered Animals




A bold menagerie of the world's weird, wonderful and disappearing animals, perfect for young adventurers and budding conservationists

We know the plight of the mighty elephant and the charismatic chimpanzee-but what of other vanishing species, whose stories are not so often told?


Mysterious baby dragons of the underworld, the dodo's long-lost cousin, gargantuan lobsters and incredible shrinking reindeer-all need our help and our attention. In this exquisite treasury, bestselling illustrator Millie Marotta celebrates the lesser-known species that are at risk of disappearing from the world today. With each animal intricately illustrated in full colour, alongside their own unique story, this is a wonderful and surprising gift, offering the chance to fall more in love with the natural world, and think about how to help save it.
