Did you find that sneaky orchid mantis hiding on the cover?
This book is full of similarly sly species-and they're all hiding in plain sight. Think you've spotted one? Lift the flap to find out
Each of the camouflaged creatures on these pages, from chickadees to crayfish, is disguised for a reason. Some are on the prowl for prey, while others hide from hungry predators. Discover why geckos have a spooky reputation; why it pays for a mouse to have a dark-colored back and light-colored belly; and why you wouldn't want to be fooled by a scorpion fish.
In this follow-up to the acclaimed Where in the Wild?, David Schwartz, Yael Schy, and Dwight Kuhn take readers on another remarkable tour through the fascinating world of animal camouflage.

Praise For Where Else in the Wild?

Outstanding Science Trade Book for Students K-12, a cooperative project of the National Science Teachers Association and the Children's Book Council.

As in Where in the Wild (2007), poetry and photography work together well in this beautifully illustrated book presenting camouflaged animals.... Notable for its finesse and variety, the poetry includes rhymed verse as well as haiku and several concrete poems. A playful but informative introduction to camouflage in nature.—Booklist magazine
