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. Contents : The birth of a city In and out of the city City living Build, build, build! High-rise life Green spaces Going underground City hall Emergency services Recreation and culture Night and day Cities of the future
