The Lovereading4Kids comment
Prize-winning illustrator Michael Foreman sends an important message about taking care of our planet so that all the creatures that live in it can be kept safe in this stunning picture book. When a small boy wakes in the night he finds the street filled with all kinds of surprising animals. They bring direct information about the destruction of their homelands. With loveable illustrations and lilting rhythms, Michael Foreman has created a fun and beautiful book with a serious message. Everyone must take notice!
Why the Animals Came to Town by Michael Foreman
This is a powerful environmental plea from one of Britain's finest illustrators. Baboons and bison, beavers, bats, ostriches and meerkats: animals from all over the world have come to our street! One boy's nocturnal visit from a parade of dancing animals warns us all that the world we share is in danger.
