    The most striking thing about this book is the illustrations: bold in a tropical, almost neon, palette. Although they are digitally done, they mimic printmaking, even adding touches where the registration between color plates is off -- an aspect that you could avoid digitally, but which makes a nice, retro look that adds to the visual buzziness of the colors.

A good discussion book.

    A beautiful book about a little girl who has her own special place, a ruined city, which she calls animal city. I read this book in Dutch, but decided to write my review in English. I am so glad that I found this book at the library, I just fell in love with the gorgeous cover. The bright colours. And the question.. what happened to the city? Review to come September 23rd.

    In this book originally published in Portugal, a girl named Nina enjoys spending time in a secret place where wild animals have taken over the city. She enjoys each step of her journey to this special place, and even looks for forgotten treasures left behind by others. For some reason, the animals love listening to her read stories, and they all have different preferences and favorites. Some young readers may be intrigued with the idea of a girl who shares her love for literacy with her animal f In this book originally published in Portugal, a girl named Nina enjoys spending time in a secret place where wild animals have taken over the city. She enjoys each step of her journey to this special place, and even looks for forgotten treasures left behind by others. For some reason, the animals love listening to her read stories, and they all have different preferences and favorites. Some young readers may be intrigued with the idea of a girl who shares her love for literacy with her animal friends and wonder if it is her voice or the stories that charm them and keep them hanging out peacefully when she is nearby while others will wonder what happened to all the humans who once lived in that city. As for me, I smiled at the thought of animals venturing into an area that once was almost forbidden to them and repurposing its buildings and land for their own needs. The digital illustrations are filled with bright colors that may appeal to young eyes more than to mine. I felt a bit overwhelmed by all the yellows and oranges layered together on some of the pages.

    Premier album que je lis qui aborde le genre post-apocalyptique de front. Le livre nous montre l'histoire d'une qui, de temps en temps, entre dans cette ville où la nature a repris ses droits, pour raconter des histoires. Malgré cette prémisse intéressante, il ne se passe pas grand chose dans ce livre, qui ne semble qu'être un prétexte pour montrer comment notre monde ressemblerait après nous.

Un bel essai, bref, mais qui plaira plus aux amateurs de beaux albums qu'aux enfants en tant que tel...

    The illustrations are 5 stars all the way; Joan is clearly a very talented artist. The text just leaves a bit to be desired.

    It's like a literary short story in that it's just kind of a snapshot of some stuff happening with no real narrative structure, but it's so nice to look at.

    Vibrant pictures are the excuse for a not very clear story of a girl who visits part? of the city where animals have taken over and reads to them...?

    I love the illustrations, but I was left asking myself what it was about. I'll have to think about this one some more.
