Let's build a house! But what comes first? A step-by-step look at how a house is constructed by real-life engineer Mike Lucas and gorgeously illustrated by Daron Parton.

Slip on your overalls, pop on your hard hat and jump in the digger - let's build a house!

First the floor, and then the walls,
Then the roof. Let's build it tall.
You and me - we'll build it all!
Up, up, up.

A step-by-step look at how a house is constructed from digging the foundations and laying the bricks through to fitting the drains and painting the walls. Let's Build a House is a high-energy, gorgeously illustrated picture book written by a real-life engineer.

Originally from the UK, Mike moved with his family to Adelaide in 2010. He started his writing career writing funny poetry anthologies and visiting schools and libraries to encourage children to create their own silly rhymes. He has had work published in various magazines and anthologies.

Mike's first picture book, Olivia's Voice, was a 2018 CBCA Awards Notable book, followed by Vanishing, Let's Build a House and Let's Build and Backyard.

As well as being a writer, Mike also owns a bookshop in Adelaide, Shakespeare's Bookshop in Blackwood. In 2017, he was the lead organiser of the first ever Adelaide Festival of Children's Books. For five days a week Mike works as an engineer and has very little time for sleep.
