Illustrated on a two page spread is a room or specific space with items that are labeled. These items are clues to an animal. You unfold one of the pages to discover what animal it could be. For example, the first room is a game room and some of the items are a billiard ball, a hose, a feather duster, and a dinosaur foot sculpture. The animal is an ostrich.
We loved reading this book as family. The clues were just the right amount of hard. We got about half right and spent a lot of time discussing what animal we thought it was going to be. This would be fun in a library and a great book to get a group involved.
