Learn all about extinct and endangered animals in this colourful book by Bristol illustrator, Rob Hodgson. Packed full of wonderful creatures, there are also plenty of tips on how you can help save our animal friends.


Danny Dodo is a detective on a mission. Over the years, hundreds of amazing animals have disappeared. Where did they go? Why did they vanish? It’s Danny’s job to find out – and he wants readers to help!

Danny Dodo’s Detective Diary includes tales about Skye the passenger pigeon; Lily, the snail muse of Hawaii whose shimmering shell inspired poetry; and Mayleen the Baiji river dolphin, known to many as the ‘Goddess of the Yangtze.’ But Danny doesn’t just want to celebrate his extinct friends – he’s going to help everyone get to know some of his endangered friends too.

Featuring 48 quirky illustrations by Bristol based artist, Rob Hodgson, Danny Dodo’s Detective Diary stands apart from other natural history titles with its characterful creatures and humorous approach to zoology based on the latest scientific research, and includes handy tips for young children on what they can do to help the planet.
