Description
The British television presenter and zoologist who has given us such fascinating nonfiction animal books as Just the Right Size, Big Blue Whale, and What's Eating You?, Nicola Davies here turns her hand to short fiction for readers 7 to 10 with this first illustrated chapter book in her series about a farm in the city. Karl is thrilled when his aunt brings home two baby lambs (they were supposed to be poodles), and Gemma inadvertently (and delightedly) becomes "mom" to five ducklings. But it is can-do Meera who has found the abandoned train station that can become their long-dreamed-of urban farmstead—if only they can convince the city council to agree. A friendly policeman, a chicken-herding dog, and a pair of runaway goats add to the founding of Silver Street Farm.

"With kids actively seeking to better their city as a focal point, Davies has begun an amusing romp of a series. Clever children and supportive adults come together in this chapter book that will spark the imaginations of the target audience."—Booklist
