Isabel Hill's wonderful book, Urban Animals takes you on a fantastical treasure hunt through New York City's architecture for animals lurking in doorways, propping up flagpoles and gazing down from cornices. Seahorses, dogs, bunnies, even donkeys are watching over the city's citizens as they head to work, home and the park. Looking through the photographs, my workaholic husband exclaimed, "I pass that building everyday and never noticed!" The back of the book includes a glossary of architectural terms and the locations of each animal featured so you can go and see them for yourself, which we will because some of the animals are in our neighborhood!
