A menagerie of colorful animals can be found within this stylish book, but pay attention! When the background color changes with each turn of the page, a different animal (almost) vanishes — and another seems to appear on every spread. Who blends in with the fallen leaves? What about the trees of the forest? Brimming with visual humor, this attractive play on color and camouflage is sure to delight keen-eyed youngsters and reward their observational skills with a few giggles.
Reviews all around the world
Implicit lessons about contrast, camouflage, foreground, and background—and paying attention—add value to a book that would be a joy to read for the colors and witty, chunky animal shapes alone. One in a series of beautifully produced books illustrating visual concepts, this is a great addition to any preschool classroom and will be lots of fun at storytimes. —Booklist Online
