Some animal farms are up in the hills, or down winding lanes. But Silver Street Farm is different -- it's in the middle of a city, and it's run by kids! Even though Meera, Gemma, and Karl live in the city, they've always wanted a farm of their own. And it looks as though their dream may happen sooner than they imagined when Meera discovers an abandoned railway station with grounds for grazing. Next, some eggs they thought were foul hatch into ducklings, and a couple of "poodles" bought off the Internet turn out to be lambs. There's just one problem: how can the kids -- and the community -- persuade the city council not to turn the old site into a parking garage? The first in a series of fun-filled stories about Silver Street Farm, here is a tale with natural appeal for kids who love animals, aim to be green, and enjoy a do-it-yourself spirit of adventure.
