Steve Jenkins, who has amazed us with titles Actual Size, What Do You Do With a Tail Like This?, and Living Color, introduces us to six different biomes around the world. This informational, 'seek and find' book is a visual feast for the viewer, as well. We can find tiny elf owls in the desert, an oyster catcher in the tide pool, a spider monkey in the jungle, a secretary bird on the savanna, a red spotted newt in the pond, and, of course, a kookaburra in the forest. Each habitat gives us eight indigenous examples. At the end of the book, a glossary gives us just enough information to want to make us learn more.
