Can you imagine what it’s like to be a curious spy hopper or a sleek belly flopper? You are invited to take a tour of field and forest to see how foxes keep a vigilant lookout, how otters play, and how a host of other wild animals communicate and survive in their natural world— and why.
Lynda Graham-Barber and Brian Lies intertwine playful rhymes and fascinating facts with luminous artwork, transporting readers into the world of some of nature’s most fascinating creatures.
