The MP caught putting a duck house on expenses must have been glad he was not responsible for some of the more ambitious schemes in this entertaining survey of the impressive and often downright bizarre dwellings which people have built for their animals over the centuries. Focusing in the main on the golden age of animal architecture in the 18th and 19th centuries it documents such oddities as a Greek temple built for pigs, ornate dairy houses 'in the Chinese style', and some utterly unique peacock shelters, as well as some of the elaborate memorials erected to much loved pets.
