Did you find that sneaky orchid mantis hiding on the cover?

This book is full of similarly sly species-and they're all hiding in plain sight. Think you've spotted one? Lift the flap to find out!

Each of the camouflaged creatures on these pages, from chickadees to crayfish, is disguised for a reason. Some are on the prowl for prey, while others hide from hungry predators. Discover why geckos have a spooky reputation; why it pays for a mouse to have a dark-colored back and light-colored belly; and why you wouldn't want to be fooled by a scorpion fish.

In this follow-up to the acclaimed Where in the Wild?, David Schwartz, Yael Schy, and Dwight Kuhn take readers on another remarkable tour through the fascinating world of animal camouflage.

Baker & Taylor
Presents poems and brief facts about eleven animals that rely on the ability to camouflage within nature to survive in the wilderness.

My four-year-old was excited to see that "Where in the Wild?" had a sequel and immediately opened the book to discover who was hiding in the photos. I was excited that some of the photos have more than one animal, so there's a bit more challenge to finding how many critters are hiding. This time around, my daughter was even interested enough to sit through the descriptions of the animals depicted. I personally liked the spring peepers because they're an animal we hear on Staten Island in the spring.
