Wild born citizens

Pavel Kvartalnov & Olga Ptashnik | 64pp | 22.7 x 28.5 cm

Many people over the world live in cities, getting around by subway or cars and living in houses made of glass and concrete. It’s a world where nature often seems forgotten. But, if you look around, in any city, dandelions break their ways through small cracks in the sidewalks, and birds weave their nests in the attics of multi-storey buildings. Stop for a minute, open your eyes and take a look: cities are full of wildlife! Tailed and feathered citizens live all around us… See how they do just that by flipping through the pages of this book!
