Readers follow an inquisitive bird flying over the city, only to stop at places where something interesting is happening: the city park, the mall, the bus station and the train station. The illustrations of the urban everyday life are full of wonderful details that catch the eye only after leafing through the book a couple of times: that way, we can find a character or two who come with us. The book promotes interactive reading, with readers composing their own stories about the hustle and bustle of the modern city.
