Acting as an urgent clarion call – to save nature’s vanishing wonders before it is too late, The Golden Mole and Other Vanishing Treasure focuses on some of the world’s strangest endangered species. The Observer says, ‘An exuberant celebration of everything from bats, crows and hedgehogs to narwhals and wombats . . . Rundell is incapable of writing a dull sentence.’  

A fellow of All Souls College, Oxford, Katherine Rundell is a bestselling author of children’s books, which have been translated into thirty languages and won multiple awards. She has also published several books for adults and writes occasionally for The Times Literary Supplement and The New York Times.
