Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Imagine climbing into an elephant, sitting inside a sombrero, or working inside a basket. These things are possible with mimetic architecture—structures that mimic other objects. From north to south, from east to west, buildings designed to look like beagles, baskets, and binoculars dot the American landscape. Join Joan Marie Arbogast in this IRA Children's and Young Adults' Book Award winner as she traces the history of this funtastic form of architecture in the United States. Discover a variety of eye-catching, head-turning buildings beginning with our nation's oldest functioning example, Lucy the Elephant, to one of our youngest, a beagle named Sweet Willy. Though different in size, shape, and color, these buildings have one thing in common: they all grab your attention.
