Picture Book Review: Human Town

Human Town by Alan Durant

Human Town
by Alan Durant (Goodreads Author), Anna Doherty (Illustrator)

4 out of 5 stars

A family of elephants visit the “Human Town”, which is a protected reserve for the endangered human species. Animals can come to visit and look around to see humans in their natural habitat. The humans are going extinct because they fight amongst themselves and throw trash into their environment. The elephants are shocked to see how the humans are dying out little by little, and they are glad that the last humans are protected in the reserve from carnivorous poachers like lions and tigers.

This is such a fun book! It’s so interesting to see how the tables are turned. Instead of humans staring at endangered elephants in a zoo, it’s the other way around. There are so many cute details in the story that make it really funny and special!

I liked that there are good conservation messages in this book, but it doesn’t preach at you or beat you over the head with it. It’s enjoyable to read about, and touches your heart in a sweet way!

I loved the beautiful artwork and cute designs! The illustrations are so attractive, and I like the soft style of the art.
