A glorious celebration of the great adventurers of the animal world!
What would you say if you were asked to make your way from Sweden to Senegal, right now, without a compass or a GPS? You’d say impossible!
But that is exactly what millions of our planet-mates are doing at this very moment. Birds, fish, crustaceans, reptiles, mammals, insects and even slime moulds undertake great and perilous journeys in order to ensure that their species may flourish.
From the 10,000 km journey of the Arctic tern, to the no less impressive one mile expedition of the naked mole rat, this book explores the mysteries and marvels of migration, celebrating the wonders of our extraordinary planet and the incredible species that inhabit it.
