The City Jungle

Get to know the lives and longings of animals in a city zoo in this time-honored tale from the author of Bambi.

The animals of the city zoo miss their homes. While they appreciate the company of one another, they have a fierce longing to be free of the daily visitors, the city sounds—and most of all, the bars to their cages.

Vasta the mouse is the only animal who is not behind bars. She uses her freedom to travel from cage to cage, visiting Yppa the orangutan and her young son Tikki, Hella the proud lioness and her two cubs, Mino the crazy fox, Pardinos the friendly elephant, and Hallo the tame wolf.

The zookeepers and visitors have no idea what life is really like in this city jungle, but Felix Salten’s depiction of these animals’ stories is brought vividly to life in this beautiful repackage.
