Hidden City

More about Hidden City

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 engaging 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.

Youth Services Book Review
“The poems play with form and repetition, mimicking the cyclical nature of nature. They are perfectly complemented by the colorful collage-like digital illustrations in rich gorgeous color and offer much detail to linger over for the youngest readers.”
