“In towns and cities…that’s where life is”, Peter the little goat would think while chewing on a bit of clover in the meadow. “There, the grass is greener, and sweeter, and more succulent”. “Oh yes, a city is different,” Klara the little hen clucked to herself dreamily. “There are beautiful houses and lots of shops everywhere, not like here in the farmyard.”

And because they were both unhappy and wanted to know more, one day they set off on a journey to towns and cities. They travelled from north to south, from east to west, and visited towns and cities large and small, historic and modern. They discovered the beauties and peculiar characteristics of them all. And how they marvelled at such wonders! Would you also like to set off on a little city adventure? Shiver in icy Yakutsk, warm up in the desert city of Yazd, or look into the future in the city of Konza? Come and join our little animal travellers, they will certainly be happy if you do so. Just turn the first of the richly illustrated pages of this book and become enchanted by the hustle and bustle of metropolises of all corners of the world.
