Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews:

"The focus is on food chains in this follow-up to the dazzling Animal Camouflage. Once again Dennis' precise, realistic cut-paper illustrations command attention. Labeled silhouettes of individual plants and animals are color coded to show their predator/prey relationships within seven marine or terrestrial habitats; these are followed by intricate, full-page monochrome scenes in which the flora and fauna are artfully incorporated to be picked out by the sharp of eye."

School Library Journal:

"This is a gorgeous illustrated work featuring facts about animal habitats while combining the enthralling aspect of popular search-and-find books like I Spy. With facts and clear diagrams of animal food chains, the text and graphics complement each other to give a wonderful overview of the surrounding world, as well as the living creatures in it. A perfect addition to elementary school nonfiction collections."

School Library Journal :

"An artful take on the Search and Find genre."

Publishers Weekly :

"Gorgeous cut-paper illustrations introduce 77 animals, 11 each in seven regions....Readers will come away with plenty of animal trivia, and Dennis's intricate cut-paper images are showstoppers."

Kirkus Reviews :

"Excellent for art lovers and for potential art lovers; both will be hooked by the search."
