The world is more astonishing, more miraculous and more wonderful than our wildest imaginings.

'Rare and magical book.' Bill Bryson

'A witty, intoxicating paean to Earth's most wondrous creatures.' Observer

In The Golden Mole, Katherine Rundell, the award-winning author of Super-Infinite and Impossible Creatures, takes us on a globe-spanning tour of the world's strangest and most awe-inspiring animals, including pangolins, wombats, lemurs and seahorses. But each of these animals is endangered. And so, this most passionately persuasive and sharply funny book is also an urgent, inspiring clarion call: to treasure and act - to save nature's vanishing wonders, before it is too late.

'Deeply affecting, intimate and wildly funny . . . I loved it.' Edmund de Waal
