It’s tough moving house and changing neighbourhoods… In this book, Hilda faces new challenges as she moves from the wilderness to the city of Trolberg!

As Hilda starts at her new school, she has to adapt to a whole new way of life and make new friends – humans as well as other creatures. Hilda faces all kinds of surprises as she explores the city and faces hordes of people… and learns to find her own space within the crowds. The City Survival Guide also contains Alfur’s ‘From our Own Foreign Correlfspondent’ journal plus various cuttings from the local paper and extracts from library books detailing mythical creatures, and lists of Hilda’s mysterious missing items…
