CITY BEATS
A Hip-Hoppy Pigeon Poem
S. Kelly Rammell Illustrated by Jeanette Canyon

Have you ever thought how marvellous a city is to a pigeon? There's adventure and surprise everywhere - at the ice-cream van,around the building sites, at a parade!

The spare, but energetic verse by S Kelly Rammell, perfectly matches the tempo of a big city and what is happening when the birds fly in (Screech! Hiss! Pop! Pound! Rat-a-tat-tat! Ka-thunk ka-thunk at the building site).

Remarkable art by Jeanette Canyon is constructed entirely with polymer clay. The clay reliefs are then photographed for the book. They vibrantly portray both pigeons and city in show-stopping 3-D and Canyon captures the unique topsy-turvy perspective of the pigeons - forcing the reader to look closely. In the process the reader gains a new appreciation for this special bird - a type of dove indigenous to rocky cliffs - that has chosen to live in urban canyons all over the world.

All ages.
