Description

This book is about animals that have disappeared - animals that are now extinct. How does it happen, and why? Find out all about alien species and mass extinctions. Find out about animals that seemed to come back from the dead. Get the facts. Then read 'The Last Mammoth', a story where the past meets the present.

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.
