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?

My four-year-old thoroughly enjoyed finding the hidden animals in the pictures. I'm not sure how much she paid attention to the poems, but I enjoyed them at least. The poems themselves occasionally were a bit too abstract - they didn't provide any clues as to what kind of animal we were looking for. I also liked that there was more information about the wildlife depicted when you lifted the flap to find out who was hiding.
