ANIMALS: Black and White

An animal puzzle book with appeal for the picture-book set. For each of seven black-and-white animals showcased (zebra, orca, panda, loon, skunk, penguin, African mocker swallowtail butterfly), a riddle accompanies a partial view of the creature, e.g., ""I live in the misty mountains far, far to the east. I love to chew bamboo."" Readers are invited to guess ""What am I?"" A turn of the page leads to the entire animal and additional information. Alas, the panda is sitting in a tree, but it is not bamboo. The riddles are not especially challenging although the vocabulary is (flutter, nectar, tissue, dolphin) for the audience that will have the most fun with this book. A ""Did you know?"" section offers additional facts.
