Djuren i staden Animals in the City

Animals #3

Welcome to the concrete jungle!

There are lots of advantages to living in the city, and some wild animals have noticed it too! Meet chit-chatting sparrows, high-rise building magpies, night patrolling foxes, subway riding pigeons, and the city’s slyest citizen – the rat.

With her storytelling, Sarah Sheppard makes animals and nature come alive in a perfect symbiosis of facts and humor.
