This follow-up to Simms Taback's Safari Animals presents six city animals in a guessing-game format: a pigeon, a police horse, a squirrel, a dog, a cat, a swan--all poster-size illustrations in Taback's one-of-a-kind style.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Full-page flaps unfold vertically, then horizontally, to create bold, large-scale images of city fauna in a sturdy guessing book. "Who am I?" asks one animal. "I make friends with people" (only a pair of legs appears at first, then another clue after lifting a flap: "I have a collar, a tag and a leash"). By folding out the third flaps to complete a square, the full picture is revealed: "I'm a dog!" Taback's animals are accentuated against bold blocks of color, and there's humor, too: the creatures' expressions range from alarmed to goofy to just plain vacuous.
