ISBN: 9781786570222

From the sewers to the skyscrapers, this book takes younger readers to the heart of the city. Perforated flaps let you see what's going on behind closed doors, and big gatefolds reveal what's going on under the street, plus other surprising city spaces. With illustrations from James Gulliver Hancock, it's the city like you've never seen it before!

Get ready to explore the city in a whole new way. This innovative book for younger readers is packed with city facts, loads of flaps to lift, and unfolding pages to see inside buildings and under the streets.
Children aged 5+ can learn about skyscrapers, subway systems and stinky sewers. Discover where people live and peek behind closed doors to see what's going on in houses and apartments, or why not find out about what goes on underneath the streets you walk on every day?

Each page is stylishly illustrated by James Gulliver Hancock, creator of the All The Buildings That I've Drawn So Far series (Universe Publishing) and there are loads of quirky details to spot. How many giant cowboy hats can you find through the book?

Created in consultation with Jill Sterrett, lecturer with the department of Urban Planning at the University of Washington.
