A striking book for children, filled with colorful illustrations that reveal creatures from the animal world that blend with nature's wonders. What creature disguises itself as a plant? A picture in this book hides the animal on one page and reveals it on the next. Dramatic and easy to read, this book covers subjects that are interesting and not all will be known to many children and their parents. Descriptions are provided of each animal in the appendix. Well done, this book is recommended for children ages 6 to 10, and to younger children with adult assistance.
