Five acetate pages, printed in full color on both sides and sandwiched between the regular pages, reveal the hidden secrets in seemingly ordinary nature scenes, in a fascinating look at how animals use camouflage for protection or predation.

Award-winning author ANITA GANERI was born in India, but grew up in England. A former editor, she has written more than 300 books. She lives in Yorkshire with her husband, two children, three dogs, and a cat.From Publishers Weekly:
Five acetate overlays are put to poor use in this ring-bound picture book about animals that depend on trompe l'oeil for survival. Here katydids conceal themselves among oak leaves, Sargassum fish blend into clumps of seaweed and an orchid mantis poses as a flower?at least that is what they're supposed to be doing. Unfortunately, the creatures are just as visible when they're "hidden" as when they're meant to be seen. Ganeri redeems this effort to some degree with her ability to relay basic facts in an interesting and informative manner, but kids hoping for a now-you-see-it/now-you-don't demonstration of natural camouflage will be disappointed. Ages 5-9.
