Wild city : meet the animals who share our city spaces

Hoare, Ben (author.). Cartwright, Lucy, (illustrator.).

Summary: "Take an unforgettable tour around the world to meet the creatures that share our city spaces--from bears to bats, penguins to opossums--and learn about how they have adapted and thrived in this gorgeously illustrated gift book written by award-winning natural history journalist Ben Hoare. Wild City travels the globe, exploring how animals have adapted to live alongside humans, in busy cities including New York, Rio de Janeiro, Berlin, Stockholm, London, Alexandria, Singapore, and Mumbai. Discover hawks by a world-famous shopping street, snakes slithering through city sewers, and penguins waiting patiently to cross the road. Feature spreads take a closer look at the animals, showing how some wander in plain sight while others hide away in our homes, and we meet wildlife heroes from around the world--ordinary people doing extraordinary things to make our wild neighbors feel welcome. Lyrical and factual text written by the award-winning Ben Hoare is perfectly complemented by Lucy Rose's stunning illustrations. The beautiful cityscapes are full of detail with something new to discover with every look."--Provided by publisher.
