The shapes in this book get mixed up, moved around, and reshaped into all kinds of animals. But can you guess which animal before they reshape?

When you mix up certain shapes and move them around, do you know what buzzy things they reshape into? Ten fluttering dragonflies! Now what about shapes that reshape into jumpy things? Would you guess nine slimy frogs? Turn each page to find a pile of shapes and a clue—stripy or clucky, prickly or pinchy, roary or scaly, stompy or fiery—then turn the page again to see if you’re right.
