From our closest relatives, the apes, to the clever birds who build bowers and crack nuts, this beautifully illustrated non-fiction picture book tells stories of amazing animals that have learned to use tools.

Look closely at that leaf floating down the river or that owl that looks suspiciously like a butterfly – there’s something peculiar about them, something not quite right… To evade capture, to find food or to protect them from harm, animals across the world have the talents of mimicry and camouflage – and they’re more convincing than you might think.


Including fun facts and bold illustrations, this accessible and fascinating guide is a brilliant first look at how animals camouflage and change their shapes. From the incredible snake that makes its tail look like a spider to the caterpillar that takes on the appearance of a viper, children can discover how and why some amazing animals use their powers of disguise – all while visually making connections with their own every day experiences.


Third in a series of non-fiction books for curious children. Focussing on extraordinary stories from nature, making links with the human world and readers’ own experiences, this series will capture children’s imaginations with lyrical prose, astonishing facts and wonderful illustrations.
