KIRKUS REVIEW

Eleven species that hide in the wild are described in poems, photographed in their natural habitat and revealed behind gatefolds, which, when opened, also include additional information. This sequel to the highly acclaimed Where in the Wild? (2007) is equally intriguing. It even includes some pictures that show more than one member of the species. The range of animals is extraordinary, including insects (from inchworms to ambush bugs) and all forms of vertebrates (from scorpion fish to white-footed mice and snowshoe hares). The poems, in a variety of forms, please the eye as well as the ear and offer useful hints for searchers, who will probably begin with the camouflage game Kuhn’s beautifully reproduced photographs provide. The additional information includes both habits and habitats plus an explanation of how the creature’s camouflage works. No information sources are provided. A teacher’s guide for the previous volume available at the publisher’s website offers pertinent suggestions for classroom use. For students as well as independent readers or browsers, this is a treat. (Informational picture book. 5-10)
