In the animal kingdom, every day is a game of Survivor: outwit, outrun, outlive. Where in the Wild? thus highlights one of the key survival skills of animals: the art of camouflage. For a prey especially, if it can’t be seen, it can’t be hunted down; whereas for a predator, keeping itself hidden from plain sight is an advantage since the prey wouldn’t see it coming until it’s too late.
In this fascinating book, readers are challenged to spot the hidden creatures of the wild. Every two-page spread focuses on a different animal, with hints in the form of a poem on the left, and a lush full-page photo on the right. The photo page opens up to reveal the camouflaged creature — in case you need help finding it (and you very well might) — as well an interesting write-up on why it camouflages itself.
However, while the text is informative, the amazing photography here rightfully takes centre stage since it offers the rare opportunity to catch these hide-and-seek professionals in action. A fascinating book that will enthrall both kids and grown-ups.
