This book is all about animals that are specialists in hiding away. There’s a spider in Asia that imitates a butterfly and a fish swimming in the Amazon that looks like a leaf. There are animals that pretend to be something very different from what they actually are – an insect assassin that imitates a swarm of ants by sticking a pile of dead ants on its back and a little frog that pretends to be bird poo.

And did you know there’s an octopus that can copy 15 different animals?
