A Seek-and-Find Book. A screech-owl parent on the hunt has a hard night in this demonstration of how animals use camouflage or disguise to escape danger. Done in a mix of linocut, paint and collage, the close-up illustrations show a succession of rough tree trunks, intertwined grasses and speckled rocks-on all of which, as sharp-eyed observers will notice, dozens of spiders, insects, frogs and other creatures are hidden. Twilight is fading and the Tawny Frogmouth must find food for her hungry chicks. But the hunt is not easy.
