Built by Animals

Meet the Creatures who Inspire our Homes and Cities

Christiane Dorion & Yeji Yun


Built by Animals introduces us to the creatures who know how to build and looks at how their techniques have been copied in human construction.

Meet over 26 animals behind the most amazing building tech. From the bee's honeycomb shape that strengthens structures to termites that build their nests with natural air-con, these creatures did it first! And, at the end of the book, find out who wins big at the Animal Builder Awards! Will it be the prairie dog, the peacock, the beaver or the firefly?

Recommended for ages 7+.
