Eugene the architect designs buildings that are incredibly straight and orderly. He is very proud of his latest work-an enormous house with perfectly perpendicular walls and windows. One day he is surprised to find a tree growing in what will be the house's living room. Instead of cutting it down, Eugene studies the tree, marveling at the way its branches, roots, leaves, and trunk grow in elegant proportions. Suddenly, Eugene sees nature in an entirely new way-not as the opposite of precise order, but as something with its own type of perfection. Thibaut Rassat's playful illustrations introduce young readers to basic architectural and geometric principles while amusing them with Eugene's prickly personality and joyful discovery. They will come away with a new appreciation for architecture and for the unexpected twists and turns that make the natural world-and our life in it-so fascinating.

Beaty, Andrea
Iggy Peck has been building fabulous creations since he was two. His parents are proud of their son, though sometimes surprised by some of Iggy's inventive creations (like the tower he built out of used diapers). When a new second grade teacher declares her dislike of architecture, Iggy faces a challenge. He loves building too much to give it up!

The Three Little Pigs

Guarnaccia, Steven
The homes of the 3 pigs are signature homes of three architects (made out of scraps, glass and stone & concrete) and the interiors are furnished by the architects and their contemporaries. Not all the houses are going to protect the pigs from the wolf's huffing. But when one of the houses holds up, it's the wolf who's in for a surprise ending.
