Who needs to fly to Africa or visit a safari park, when there is so much wildlife on our doorsteps? This book examines squirrels and discusses where city squirrels live, what they eat, what dangers they face, and why they like living so close to people. Special "spotter's clues" symbols highlighting key squirrel behaviors and features are used throughout the book to enable readers to go on their own "city safari" once they have finished reading the book.
