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.

The new standard for pop-up books is sky-high, and this ingenious introduction to woodland ecology is up to the challenge.
