(First Edition, Signed Bookplate) We've always admired how Steve Jenkins's superb, realistically detailed collages of painted and cut paper capture the essence of each creature he depicts. In their 17th collaboration—following such outstanding works as the Caldecott Honor Book What Do You Do with a Tail Like This? and the New York Times Best Illustrated Book Move!—Jenkins and his wife Robin Page let readers up to 6 guess the identity of seven animals based on a set of playfully descriptive verbal and visual clues like: "I have two big yellow eyes, soft, silky feathers, eight sharp claws, and an unlucky mouse in my pointy black beak. Who am I?" Along with a great horned owl, you'll also find a bullfrog, cottontail rabbit, ghost crab, flamingo, spider monkey, and ladybug here. This first edition includes a bookplate signed by Page and Jenkins.
"Their latest nonfiction offering adopts a more unconventional format: readers are given clues about an animal before it is revealed on the subsequent page. This playful layout makes this an ideal book for read-alouds.... A delightfully fresh resource on the animal world."—Booklist
