Summary
"Leo teaches his cat Pallas all about buildings and structures by applying his knowledge of science to their stone age world. Engaging illustrations and stories provide a fun introduction to science concepts, including ramps, forces and loads, tension, and more. Information boxes accompany each story to explore real applications of buildings and structures in the natural and designed world."--
