Brilliant at bas-relief cut-paper collage, Giles Laroche is the illustrator of several picture books -- including What Do Wheels Do All Day (Houghton) and Bridges are to Cross -- many of which have generated starred reviews and foreign and special sales. He lives in Salem, MA and in the summer moves to an old barn in New Hampshire.
"This exemplary title can inspire readers as well as educate them."--School Library Journal, starred review "With such small connections, Laroche emphasizes the similarities over the differences, making this volume both an informative sampling of domestic architecture and a meaningful representation of global culture."--Booklist
