About the Book

Celebrated poet X.J. Kennedy captures what it means to be a kid in a city full of zany characters and urban adventures waiting to happen. Philippe Béha’s exuberant illustrations are a perfect match to these humorous rhymes.

Set in cities in Canada, the US and the UK, city kids will see themselves reflected in these amusing poems.

Praise for City Kids:

“There is plenty of child appeal and perspective, as well as…rhymes and alliteration to catch the fancy of young listeners. Recommended.” — Library Media Connection
