Humanimal Summary

Humanimal: Incredible Ways Animals Are Just Like Us! by Christopher Lloyd

So you think you're special? Just because people have built cities, invented pop-up toasters and put people on the Moon that they are somehow different from (or better than) other living things? Well it's time to think again! Humanimal explores the interconnections of the human and natural worlds in ways you never before imagined...

Inside you will discover how slime moulds learn how to navigate through a maze; how rats are ticklish and how it makes them laugh out loud; how elephants have funerals for their lost loved ones; how bees vote in elections to decide where to locate their nests; how crows use cars to crack nuts and a whole lot more! This richly illustrated, mesmerising exploration shows that humans and other animals don't just live on the same planet, they also share many of the same patterns of behaviour, making us all fellow players in the drama that is life on Earth.

Fascinating and stunningly illustrated, Humanimal explores and celebrates the astonishing ways in which animals and humans are alike.

Written by Christopher Lloyd, the bestselling author of Absolutely Everything, and illustrated by the superbly talented Mark Ruffle. Including a colourful jacket with a wonderful animal surprise underneath, this book will astound and amaze children aged 7-11, along with their family and friends, too!

Humanimal Reviews

The illustrations are lovely, using bold blocks of colour and showing the creatures sensitively. I particularly love the spread of the bees on honeycomb and flower. This is great book to add to the class or school library, encouraging children to pause and consider the similarities between us.

* North Somerset's Teachers' Book Awards *

This over-sized hardback non-fiction title is presented in a logical and accessible format ... This is a superb non-fiction title that is enjoyable to read from cover to cover or simply to dip into for some fascinating facts. An outstanding book with an intriguing title which will entice the most reluctant of readers.

* The School Librarian (SLA) *

These examples give a fascinating insight to the similarities between species and promote sympathy with the animal world - which can only be a good thing for future generations.

* BookTrust *

A wealth of information about the ways in which animals work, build, live and have fun together.

Brilliant ... Brimming with Lloyd's energy and enthusiasm, and with fun and learning on every page, this is a glorious celebration of our enduring relationship with all creatures great and small.

About Christopher Lloyd

Bestselling author Christopher Lloyd began his career as a journalist with the Sunday Times newspaper. Then, while camping with his family, he had a critical realisation: even with a 1st class degree in history from Cambridge University and experience as a science writer, there was so much about the world he didn't know. So, he set out to write books that zoom out and tell the big stories, opening readers' eyes to how seemingly unrelated events fit together and showing them multiple perspectives on the world, all in highly engaging prose and matched with lively illustration and photography. Now, with several books in print, including the bestselling What on Earth Happened? and Absolutely Everything!, Chris divides his time between writing books and delivering lectures and workshops to schools, literary festivals, and a wide range of other venues around the world. He lives in Tonbridge, Kent, with his wife and two adorable terriers.

Mark Ruffle studied graphic design and then worked as an art editor for Oxford University Press, before becoming a freelance illustrator and designer. When he's not drawing animals or spaceships, among other things, he enjoys walking his dogs and cycling in the Cotswolds, where he lives with his wife and two daughters.
