Once, creatures of all shapes and sizes wandered this empty land. They had horns and wings, scales and feathers. They lived in vibrant forests, desert plains and icy tundras. But where are they now?

Vanishing is a striking tale of our natural world and the looming environmental threats to the creatures that call it home. With stunning illustrations of Jennifer Harrison and the evocative prose of Mike Lucas, Vanishing is not only a beautifully crafted book, but an important story about our planet and the creatures we share it with. 

'Vanishing, an evocative picture book from author Mike Lucas and illustrator Jennifer Harrison, delivers a sharp warning about the growing dangers of humanity’s impact on the natural environment and the animals who call it home…Harrison’s illustrations are exquisite (and almost lifelike), capturing the raw beauty of the natural environment…Animal lovers and fans of Graeme Base’s Animalia will appreciate the world built in the pages of Vanishing.’ — Amy Nicholls-Diver, Books+Publishing
