Summary
George loves helping out at Wormestall Farm, a hidden sanctuary for a number of strange and extinct animals. Dragons, dodos and dinosaurs all live happily here, but when Mortifier the giant basilisk goes missing, it is up to George to find him. He faces a race against time to save the rare creature and has to get to him before the wicked taxidermist Diamond Pye has the chance to add him to her stuffed animal collection. Funny and exciting, with just the right amount of anarchy for boys aged 7+, The Extincts is a book that covers the important themes of friendship and caring for animals and will appeal to animal-loving fans of Dick King-Smith and Eva Ibbotson
Summary
Applying for a job at a farm where the animals are rather unusual, George and his new friend are embroiled in a madcap adventure involving creatures previously believed to be either mythological or extinct that they want to protect from a maniacal taxidermist
