Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ages 5-9. Otto says that camouflage is a kind of disguise, and Lloyd's detailed watercolor-and-ink illustrations show that disguise in action. You have to look closely to see the doe's spotted fawn crouched in the dappled thicket, the stick insect perched on a branch. Part of the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series, this brings biology right into your own backyard ("look closely when you go outside") as it celebrates the wonder of what nature hides and reveals ("sticks seem to crawl, leaves can fly, and a stone may have eyes and a beak"). The clear, rhythmic text dramatizes how camouflage helps both predator and victim, and new readers will want to talk about the natural law: there are animals that must hunt, and the hunted must hide.
