London is a great city, shared by many creatures. Here you will learn about the (too) friendly pigeon, a famous squirrel thief, the magpie who joined the police, bats who objected to being on reality TV and a blackbird whose tragic life story and beautiful singing voice let to stunning success on a Saturday night talent show. There’s also a rockstar newt, a terrapin whose behaviour cause mayhem in the suburbs and an amorous slug. We live with these animals. We love and loath them. Without them, our lives would be a lot less rich.
