A Wild Child’s Guide to Endangered Animals

Millie Marotta has always loved the natural world. But in her lifetime much has changed for the animal kingdom. Today we are losing species more quickly than we are discovering new ones. And while we know the plight of the mighty elephant or the charismatic chimpanzee, 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 – they too need our help and our attention. With each animal exquisitely illustrated in full colour by Millie, alongside the story of their uniqueness, 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.
