This book asks children: If you're given a list of features and characteristics, can you guess which animal they make? This might seem easy enough. But solving the puzzles in this book is deviously, outrageously, almost impossibly tricky! Though the thirteen animals included are easily recognizable --- such as polar bear, snail, ostrich, pufferfish --- the clues are unexpe ...more

What did you like about the book? Each two page spread starts with the line, “What animal could you make with...” Then clues such as, dinosaur feet, feather dusters, the speed of a greyhound, and three billiard balls? Using the clues, readers try to guess each animal. A lift of the flap will let them know if their guess was right. In this example, the answer is an ostrich. In all, twelve different animal puzzles appear. Under the flap, along with the answer, readers find additional information a ...more

This book is a lot of fun. It is very different from the Steve Jenkins type animal guessing books but just as well done as his. I like the authors' choices of animals because it wouldn't be any fun if the animals were so obscure you could never guess the answers. The parts and items used to give hints were descriptive enough without giving too much away and yet hard enough to guess that readers will have to work hard to come up with the correct animal. The illustrations were good and the "About ...more

An interesting book with not your run-of-the-mill animals. Very challenging. My guess would be that most children would not be able to guess most of the animals, although it is fun to see the results explained once you flip the page. The facts are very interesting and short enough not to be overwhelming for a child. All in all, a unique book that would be fun to browse through for parent and child together.

I won this book in one of the Giveaways on Goodreads, intending to give it to my newphews. I read it before giving it to them. How clever! The clues were tricky and fun to figure out what the animals were. Maybe 7 is too young for the puzzles. But a fun read with great illustrations. I can't wait to give this to them!

This book is a superb combination of puzzle solving, picture searching and animal science. Pages of softly muted colored illustrations fold open to reveal answers and facts. This unique non-fiction compilation will appeal to creature lovers aged seven to 10.

The book had a really cool format. I intended it for my goddaughter; I think she will like it since it even stumped me on some of the puzzles!
