Christopher Lloyd, illus by Mark Ruffle

What on Earth Publishing

From author of Absolutely Everything, Christopher Lloyd, comes a fascinating book uncovering the curious connections between humans and other animals.

Think humans are special? That just because people have built giant cities, invented pop-up toasters and put a person on the Moon that they are somehow different from other living things? Well it’s time to think again! Humanimal shows the inextricable interconnections of the human and animal worlds in ways never before imagined…

Inside readers will discover how slime moulds can solve how to navigate through a maze; how rats tickle and 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 oversized, 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.
