About this book

Hundreds of years ago, Earth was home to some strange animals. There was the giant beaver taller than a human; the Sicilian dwarf elephant; the three-metre-tall elephant bird; the giant lemur nicknamed the tratratratra; the world-famous dodo...

Hunted by humans and weakened by climate change, these animals gradually disappeared. All that remains are footprints and fossils, explorers' stories and fascinating folk tales – all waiting to be discovered in the pages of Small and Tall Tales of Extinct Animals.
