Masters of Disguise: Camouflaging Creatures & Magnificent Mimics

author/illustrator: Marc Martin

Now you see them, now you don’t. Cloaked in a riot of color, pattern, and texture are a dozen animals—from chameleons and polar bears to Gaboon vipers and mimic octopuses—that have mastered the art of fading into the background. Fact-packed pages segue into clever and beautifully illustrated seek-and-find spreads that put readers’ newfound knowledge of each creature and its ecosystem to the test. In a timely and visually arresting novelty book for nature lovers of every stripe, Marc Martin jets budding conservationists around the world to artfully expose the secrets of animal camouflage.

In a seek-and-find extravaganza, stylish illustrations and a brisk text unmask twelve of the most elusive creatures on earth.

author’s comments:
Marc Martin is an award-winning artist, illustrator, and author. He is the creator of A Forest, Everything & Everywhere and the New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Children’s Book of the Year A River, among others. “In a world of climate change and human encroachment on the natural world,” he says, “better understanding the creatures with whom we share the earth—even when we can't easily see them—is critical. Finding animals, learning about them, and understanding why they hide from predators like us is essential to caring for the planet in today's world.” Marc Martin lives in Melbourne, Australia.
