A poetic book highlighting everyday nature

The perfect blend of science and poetry, Hidden City demonstrates that nature can thrive anywhere, even in highly populated areas. In this graceful collection of poems, skyscrapers serve as perches for falcons, streetlights attract an insect buffet for hungry bats, and an overgrown urban lot offers shelter to both flora and fauna. Hidden City also includes engageing supplementary materials, which provide scientific information about the animals and plants featured in the book.

Coupled with beautiful collage illustrations, the poems in Hidden City offer readers the perfect reminder to notice and care about their environment. 

Kirkus Reviews
"Paired with Schimler-Safford's breathtaking digital collages, Tuttle's 28 free-verse poems and engaging end notes center on representatives from the plant, animal, and insect kingdoms commonly found in North American urban and suburban settings. . . . This celebration of urban wildlife subtly informs as it delights."
