Architecture (According to Pigeons) - Hardcover Book
A perfect introduction for children ages 7 and up to the most beautiful buildings in the world and the basic principles of architecture using a fun, lively and engaging way of learning.
In a bid to improve ever worsening relations between our two species, pigeon elder Speck Lee Tailfeather has been elected by his peers to reveal to human beings the truth about pigeons finer sensibilities. It is already a little known fact that pigeons are amongst some of the most intelligent creatures in the world. However, Speck plans to divulge more. Namely that—far from the perceived pests who plague our buildings—pigeons are in fact great admirers and aficionados of architecture. It is of course for this reason that they can be found in great numbers around the most beautiful and significant buildings in the world.
Speck journeys around the world to visit his favorite buildings, and then to publish his writings about them. Here, in Architecture (According to Pigeons), we read his account of this journey, with information and opinions on the buildings he visits, as well as his musings on many aspects of architecture.
Architecture (According to Pigeons) ends with a post-script from Speck. He urges every young reader to go and find out about and appreciate the architecture about which he was so passionate... and of course, to be kinder to pigeons.
