Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2–5—Following the elegant design of Where in the Wild? (Tricycle, 2007), the skillful trio of Schwartz, Schy, and Kuhn once more create tri-part entries of poetry, photography, and factual explanation to reveal 11 creatures difficult to spot in their natural habitats. Like the animals, the poems introducing them vary in size and shape. Haiku, quatrains, and visual verses offer hints about the critters that are hidden (some more fully than others) in the lovely facing pictures. Each photograph folds out to reveal the highlighted figure of the designated animal against a shaded view of the first scene and a page of discussion about its behavior, physical characteristics, and interactions with other species. An inchworm, gecko, crayfish, ambush bug, and others are beautifully introduced in the guessing-game scheme. The camouflage concept is a worthwhile lesson, and the information is interesting. Best of all, the book's a versatile package for read-aloud fun and personal browsing and enjoyment as well as classroom use.—Margaret Bush, Simmons College, Boston END

Review

Outstanding Science Trade Book for Students K-12, a cooperative project of the National Science Teachers Association and the Children's Book Council.

As in Where in the Wild (2007), poetry and photography work together well in this beautifully illustrated book presenting camouflaged animals.... Notable for its finesse and variety, the poetry includes rhymed verse as well as haiku and several concrete poems. A playful but informative introduction to camouflage in nature.—Booklist magazine

Being able to disappear into their surroundings is a necessary skill for many animals. Sometimes camouflage helps them find prey or keeps them from becoming another predator's dinner. Whatever the reason, their ability to blend into their surrounding is downright amazing.

Each page consists of a clever or elegant poem paired with a beautiful photograph. The rhyme offers clues to help the readers locate which animal is being cleverly camouflaged by the flowers and foliage. And I do mean cleverly! You'll have to look very closely, as these guys are masters of disguise. Luckily for clueless parents, the photo page lifts up, revealing an identical photo beneath with the backgrounds grayed out, so the hidden animal is instantly revealed. Thank goodness for the answer key, as I stared at the Leaf Insect photo for several minutes without making any progress at all.

In addition to providing the answer to the puzzle, the lift of the page folds out to reveal fascinating facts about each animal's natural history and how it relies on camouflage to survive. The Orchid Mantis so closely mimics its namesake that it can just stand next to a flower and be nearly impossible to see. The Lined Leaf Tailed Gecko (on the book's cover) is such an expert at hiding that the people of Madagascar think these lizards are possessed by evil spirits.

Several paragraphs of information on eleven different animals makes this a fairly substantial read. Beautiful photography, fun rhymes and a game of hide and seek combine to become an incredibly enjoyable book of nature. Younger children will enjoy finding the animals, while older kids will be more apt to learn more about these animals that are able to hide in plain sight.

The third graders at Sheridan Elementary School, Lincoln, NE have EAGERLY awaited this sequel. They were not disappointed. The hidden animals and clever poetry enthralled them. They loved the way the shape of many poems mimicked the lines of the creature depicted. To have the scientific information about the subjects is such a plus. To see the integration of poetry and science has inspired more research in the classroom to accompany writing. There is something to intrigue every student. The book has been constantly off the shelf and on students' desks since it arrived. It has inspired some wonderful work from these eight and nine year olds. The one question they have is when will they publish the NEXT one???

I bought this for my grandson, who loves bugs, reptiles and small creatures. The book is fun, with good quality photos and interesting information. I didn't realize, when I ordered it, that it is a sequel to another book. Now I think I'll look for the first book as well.

My three-year-old daughter loves this book so much. We checked it out from the library many times and it fell apart so we bought the library's copy. She knows the animals' names and we talk about how they hide from animals and insects that want to eat them.
