THE GOLDEN MOLE by KATHERINE RUNDELL
** SHORTLISTED FOR WATERSTONES BOOK OF THE YEAR **
The world is more astonishing, more miraculous and more wonderful than our wildest imaginings.
In this passionately persuasive and sharply funny book, Katherine Rundell tells us how and why.
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.
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 pangolin keeps its tongue furled in a pouch by its hip, a Greenland shark can live five hundred years, a wombat once inspired a love poem.
Uncle Tom’s Cabin
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
Message to Catalonia
Romeo & Juliet
A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
