Synopsis

Wonderwise: 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.
