KIRKUS REVIEW

paper 0-88106-134-4 Tildes (Animals, 1996, etc.) presents more riddles on animals, this time focusing on those that use camouflage in order to survive. Seven unusual animals hide from predators and prey in these pages: polar bear, white-tailed deer, horned owl, crab spider, Ceylon leaf insect, leafy sea dragon, and tree frog. Tildes gives clues and invites viewers to guess the name of the hidden animal, then provides a closer look at the animal, making the camouflaging details more apparent. Although the vividly colored gouache illustrations lack the subtlety of the previous title, this title will work well for group viewing. An afterword includes the names of the types of camouflage and additional information about the featured animals. (Picture book/nonfiction. 4-8)
