Animals and insects use camouflage to hide from hunters or to ambush prey. Stealth is a very useful technique when it comes to survival. In this fun and informative collection of poems, we meet animals such as the polar bear and the octopus; the ghost crab and the copperhead snake; and many more that use camouflage to hunt or to hide.

Giles Laroche's intricate cut-paper illustrations are beautiful and life-like. Readers will have to look carefully or run the risk of a hunter sneaking up on them.

Back matter offers additional information about each of the nineteen animals.

You'll find this one shelved with the books about animal adaptations, but it teaches through a series of poems about camouflage. Cut-paper illustrations make this one lovely enough to share selections as read-alouds for storytime!
