THE CITY OF ANIMALS
La cité des animaux - Emmanuelle Mardesson & Sarah Loulendo
- 26 x 33 cm - 32 pages - €16 - April 2016
This book takes readers to a utopian city full of animals. Each two-page spread features different neighbourhoods – the library, the market, the bath and the funfair – at different times of day. The text is subtle and slightly mischievous, and uses animals like Dubengal the tiger, Nina the turtle and Kohl the gazelle to set the scene. The detailed images depict humorous situations acted out by a range of creatures. The City of Animals is an amusing bestiary and a poetic journey through an imaginary city that children will love.
