In this stunning pop-up book, meet seven animal builders and see how their unique skills help them survive - and live together in harmony in the neighbourwood. At the edge of the forest a spider spins her web, while nearby a hummingbird uses strands of spider silk to build her nest. These are just two of the many animals who live side by side, sharing the resources they need to construct homes, traps or places to store food. From award-winning artist Shawn Sheehy comes an up-close look at the architectural masterpieces of the animal world, featuring an array of beautiful, life-like pop-ups originally crafted with handmade paper. The earthy exploration culminates in a breathtaking final spread showing all the neighbourwood creatures together.
