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.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 drains and sewers, and penguins waiting patiently to cross the road. Feature spreads take a closer look at the animals - how some wander in plain sight, whilst others bide their time to explore and the distances travelled by some animals to find a tasty meal. Lyrical and factual text written by the award-winning Ben Hoare is perfectly complemented by Lucy Rose's stunning illustrations. The beautiful city scapes are full of detail with something new to discover with every look.
