Where in the Wild?: Camouflaged Creatures Concealed... and Revealed

David M. Schwartz, Yael Schy
Where in the Wild?: Camouflaged Creatures Concealed... and Revealed

Ten creatures await, camouflaged in artful, full-page photographs, while playful poems offer clues about each animal's identity and whereabouts. Think you've spotted one? Lift one of ten gatefolds to find out. A full page of fascinating information accompanies each animal so readers can learn how nature's camouflage serves hunter and hunted alike. Why do fawns have spots during their first year of life? How did killdeer birds get their name? What makes a crab spider so good at ambushing its prey?
