From the creative team that brought us Where in the Wild? and Where ELSE in the Wild? come 10 new mysteries of the natural world for readers to solve. Kid-pleasing riddles paired with mystifying images give clues to guess: What creature made that pile of twigs, mass of leaves, frothy spittle, and so on...And why? As with the other books, answers are found by opening a generous gatefold and revealing full-color photographs.

Review, Kirkus Reviews, July 1, 2010:
"This third in the series of highly acclaimed books that began with Where in the Wild? offers a clever twist on the original idea."
Review, School Library Journal, September, 2010:
"...This tidy package from a talented trio will delight children (and teachers of whole curriculum, too)."
Review, Booklist, September 15, 2010:
"The clever verse, curious photos, and guessing-game element will engage children, while the clear explanations and photos of details will enlighten them."
Review, The Children's Book Review, November 15, 2010:
"An engaging and mind-tingling book for young readers."
Review, The 4:00 Book Hook, December 2010/January 2011 issue:
"... one could teach an entire year (at least) of math and science using the books that David M. Schwartz has had a hand in making, and WHAT IN THE WILD? Surely validates that idea. It’s a picture book but budding scientists or poets of all ages will find it fascinating."
