Who needs to visit a safari park when there is so much wildlife on our doorsteps? Each book in this series looks at a different wild animal and takes the reader on a city safari. Special ‘Spotter’s Clues’ symbols highlighting key animal behaviours and features are used throughout the books to enable readers to go on their own ‘city safari’ once they have finished.
“A raccoon climbing down a fire escape and a traffic-dodging fox are just two of many images that will engage readers in these looks at how and why animals live in cities. . . .all of the books provide an intriguing entry into the world of urban wildlife.” – School Library Journal
