Animals: Hide and Sneak Summary


Animals: Hide and Sneak by Bastien Contraire

One of these things is almost like the others...

Inspired by the picture book Undercover, a sixty-four-page masterpiece of spot-the-odd-one-out published in 2016, comes a series of odd-one-out board books for the youngest readers. Bastien Contraire creates spreads with four to eight images each - all of which belong together, except one that may resemble the others but has no business joining the lot. A teapot amongst sitting cats, a belt amongst snakes, and a feathered hat amongst birds are all hiding in plain site for the delighted toddler to discover giddily! Young readers will exercise skills of categorization and visual acuity in finding the 'poser', and bask in the preposterous silliness.

Animals: Hide and Sneak Reviews


2017 Board Books Worth Noting, School Library Journal

"A clever and artful odd-one-out book that will engage young readers... The stylish illustrations are simple and recognisable for young readers who love to identify shapes."-Families Surrey East

"Young readers will exercise skills of categorization and visual acuity in finding the 'poser', and bask in the preposterous silliness."-The Children's Book Review

"As in Undercover, there's sly humor at work in many scenes... but the book's real delights come from contemplating the visual or thematic reasons why it's there."-Publishers Weekly

"The rare board book that manages to incorporate both good design and kid-friendly elements." -Fuse8 blog
