This is a great “I Spy” type book. Each page spread has a two stanza rhyming poem that gives clues as to which animal is supposed to be different than the rest. The illustrations show animals of all kinds: camels, penguins, bats, fish, etc. Then the reader is supposed to find the animal that is doing something different than the other animals, such as: find the camel with one hump among a page full of camels with two humps. Or find the penguin who is hiding a baby under its wing among a page full of normal penguins. The illustrations are modern and fantastic. My five and four year old boys love, loved this book and wanted to look at it more closely when we got to the end.
