Childrens non-fiction. Steve JenkinsSteve Jenkins always has books that are fascinating to read and look at. The information about various animals is unusual and engaging. The illustrations, by Jenkins and his wife Robin Page are paper collage on a digitally created background. This book focuses on animal camouflage. It discusses animals in various types of habitats, shows them in their background, and then on the next page pulls the animal out of the background and gives more information. This ...more

Very nice formatting. Alternating 2 page spreads -- the first in each set includes a description of a habitat and images of animals camouflaged there, and the second shows each of those animals isolated from their surroundings (with smaller inset images next to them to remind you what they looked like camouflaged with their surroundings). The text is sparse enough that it could be used as a readaloud with 6-to-10 year olds, as long as the group was small enough to be able to see the beautiful, i ...more

I think children will like this book, as it shows the amazing ways animals are created to hide. It also gives a little information about each animal, without overwhelming the readers with facts. The size comparison is also helpful, as even non-readers could understand the animals' sizes. The illustrations are beautiful.

Another terrific collaboration from Steve Jenkins and Robin Page, who bring kids original perspectives and fascinating facts on animals. This one focuses on how animals hide from predators or prey in varied habitats, from coral reefs to the Arctic tundra.
