Set in cities in Canada, the US and the UK, city kids will see themselves reflected in these amusing poems by award-winning poet, X J Kennedy.

Like taxis at curbside
They're waiting for hire.
Does nobody need them
To put out a fire?

A hydrant-like doorman
In red, buttoned up,
Regards with suspicion
An innocent pup.

On days when it heatwaves
Us kids scamper out
In swimsuits. Then hydrants
Unscrew, spurt, and spout.
