"I am confident that this book will be pored over individually, shared with friends, and discussed by primary school children of all ages. Although the text focuses on only fifteen creatures, the final list of another sixty endangered species will be hard to ignore. Who would not want to know more about the Golden-rumped Sengi, the Northern Quoll, the Devil's Hole Pupfish or the Banded Cotinga? And the tribute written by Sir David Attenborough in praise of the IUCN Red List emphasises that this is a book with huge credibility and relevance for a young contemporary audience."* Just Imagine *
