Wild City: Meet the animals who share our city spaces Kindle Edition
About the Author
Ben Hoare is an award-winning journalist who has written and edited many natural-history books and magazines for DK, the BBC, London's Natural History Museum and many others. Think of a well-known wildlife or nature writer who writes in English, and Ben has probably edited their words at some point. Since 2008 he has been Features Editor of BBC Wildlife Magazine. In 2015 Ben was awarded the Dilys Breese Medal for science communication by the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) - he is one of only fifteen people to hold the award.
Lucy Rose graduated from Falmouth University, UK, with a BA in Illustration. Her work is largely inspired by vintage prints and art deco posters, using limited and muted colour palettes. Lucy has always loved the print processes and this is reflected in her work. She combines handprint-inspired layers with pen-drawn figures and puts them together using digital techniques. Her work features a mixture of both narrative and decorative elements to create striking, graphic compositions, and has appeared in, among others, The Daily Telegraph, Deloitte, Financial Times, Johns Hopkins Health Review, and Royal Ascot Magazine.

Wild City explores how animals live alongside humans in busy cities. Wherever you are in the world, this book will help you take a fresh look at the urban environment and discover the incredible range of creatures who call it home.
Illustrated by Lucy Rose, whose work is inspired by vintage prints and art deco posters, and written by journalist Ben Hoare who was the Features Editors of BBC Wildlife magazine.
Mumbai is home to more than 20 million people, making this megacity one of the biggest in the world. It’s a busy, bustling place. But at night, Mumbai shows a wilder side. Snakes, big cats and many other creatures appear from their daytime hiding places.
