Shawn Sheehy is an artist with a love of ecology who enjoys exploring such themes as interconnectedness, adaptability, and evolution. Passionate about pop-up books, he works sculpturally with the book format and has presented numerous workshops on pop-up engineering across the country. He lives in Chicago.
This beautifully crafted pop-up introduces a spectrum of wildlife residing together in the same "neighborwood." ... Sheehy carefully links one neighbor to the next until they are brought together in an impressive final display of their shared habitat. Readers will find lots to delight in and learn in this gorgeous book.

Sheehy makes an impressive children's book debut, using dramatically unfolding pop-ups to introduce seven woodland animals with special construction skills of their own.... A visually striking and enriching overview of animals living independently and as part of an ecosystem.
