About the Book
This stunning book looks at how animals use camouflage in several distinct ecosystems spanning the globe: swamp (Florida Everglades), desert (Africa's Sahara), rain forest (South America's Amazon), deciduous forest (Europe), arctic (North America), and coral reef (Australia's Great Barrier Reef). For each habitat, a lush full-page spread is followed by the key that explains how each animal uses camouflage and where it can be found in the preceding spread.

"Stevenson's engrossing way of hiding animals makes the book as much art as science."—Booklist
