Description

Some scientists say there could be two hundred million different types of living things in the world. Actually, nobody really knows. But there is a problem. Many of these types of living things are becoming extinct. Find out why. Find out which animals are in danger, and what we can do to save them. Then read 'Where the Forest Ended', a true story that shows how sometimes it is very hard to do the right thing to help endangered animals survive.

This fantastic book features an exciting combination of both fiction and non-fiction. The non-fiction section enables readers to engage with the subject matter, using dramatic illustrations and bite-sized texts. The beautifully illustrated fiction story appears in two formats - short, simple texts for more able readers and an illustrated 'speech bubble' version of the same story, for those who are really struggling. Part of the Trailblazers series, this book is brilliant for keeping reluctant readers engaged.
