    Description The Golden Mole : and Other Living Treasure

    'Exquisite and timely.' Maggie O'Farrell'A rare and magical book. I didn't want it to end.' Bill Bryson'A witty, intoxicating paean to Earth's wondrous creatures.' Observer'A total miracle.' Max Porter** SHORTLISTED FOR WATERSTONES AND FOYLES BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARDS **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.
