Deborah Frenkel and Ingrid Bartkowiak
Look closer, look with care, and you may find a forest…
Among the steel and stone canyons of the city, nature flourishes in tiny, tenacious ways. Follow the ant (Iridomyrmex purpureus) to discover the scraps of wilderness hiding in plain sight in this lyrical celebration of urban flora and fauna. Naturopolis is a wonderful acknowledgement of the unseen, and the world that awaits the viewer, eager to connect with nature. You don’t have to go far to find what is waiting for us beneath our feet. A title that will be popular with families, primary classrooms and anyone who loves to celebrate the myriad of life on our planet.
A book that speaks to young people on every level, as is exactly what they need now.

Naturopolis is Deborah Frenkel’s first book, but she soon signed a second book with Affirm Press. Based in Melbourne, when she’s not writing for kids, she’s usually copywriting for TV commercials, billboards, and the labels of shampoo bottles. Kids, thankfully, are usually more appreciative.
