Jon Evans’ Beasts of New York, a children’s book for adults (his words, not ours), centres around the imagined survival of urban wildlife of New York City. If you’re not sold on the concept yet, you will be, after just a page or two of this excellent novel which follows the inner-city adventures of Patch, a New York squirrel, and his fellow woodland creatures. Based on its furry protagonist, Beasts of New York’s captivating story line and themes of survival, friendship, danger, betrayal, redemption and loss make it definitely adult fare. You’ll likely never look at Central Park, or any park, the same again.
