Even an Octopus Needs a Home

Even an Octopus Needs a Home

by Irene Kelly




Animals and insects make incredible homes—nests, burrows, treehouses, lodges, caves, and more.

From the snug sleeping bags made out of leaves constructed by Honduran white bats to the thirty-feet-high towers filled with passageways and rooms that termites build, animals have impressive abodes.

Young nature lovers will be fascinated by how animals solve the problem of locating safe places in which to live and raise families. Fun, colorful watercolor illustrations bring these fantastic homes to life.
