Hidden among other patterns as repetitive and brightly colored as his own variegated stripes, a snake challenges readers to discover him in one picture after another: "I'm playing with toys / twisting `round vases, / weaving through baskets, / and tangling with laces.'' The text doesn't add much here, but Baker's bold, handsomely stylized art is sure to amuse with its many clever pseudo-snakes and intriguing camouflages of the real one. (Picture book. 3-8)
