This book offers detailed accounts of everyday encounters between children and animals, exploring the myriad ways in which their lives are entangled, co-shaped and co-implicated in their common worlds. This groundbreaking book uniquely frames child-animal relations within the context of global ecological challenges, engaging with more-than-human theory to consider the interconnected cultural, environmental and ethical issues we face and bequeath to future generations. The book traces child-animal geo-historical trajectories and convergences in different places, considers child-animal entanglements through an examination of global and nation specific cultural texts, and reflects upon the ethical implications of child-animal entangled pasts, presents and futures. This book also showcases new and innovative research methods, including multispecies ethnographies and applied more-than-human relational geographies and more
