Synopsis

Hiding: A Book About Animal Disguises by Karen Wallace

For many animals Hiding is the only way of staying alive: sometimes it's to fool hungry enemies and sometimes it's to creep unseen upon luckless prey. The world of animal disguise is rich and colourful - a hunting tiger's coat can cleverly blend into long grass, a harmless fly will pretend to be a fierce hornet and an opossum will play dead. The Wonderwise series presents facts in a way that will inspire young children's imaginations about the world around them.

She and illustrator Mike Bostock won the TES Information Book Award for THINK OF AN EEL (Walker Books). Her novel RASPBERRIES ON THE YANGTSE was short-listed for the Guardian Award. She is married to novelist Sam Llewellyn. Charles Fuge's picture book debut won both the Macmillan Prize and the Mother Goose Award. Since then he has illustrated more than thirty picture books, including the bestselling Little Wombat stories. He lives in Dorset with his partner, Sarah, and their son Ollie.

It gives a chance to read about new titles, invites comments from all kinds of readers and is run by such a nice bunch of book lovers.

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

It has enriched my leisure time by introducing me to a world of books which I would not have previously considered.
