Summary
"Red, blue, yellow, green, orange, purple, pink -- animals can be amazingly colorful. Why are they found in so many hues? How do their brilliant feathers, scales, shells, and skin help them survive? Find out ... how animals use color to warn predators, signal friends, attract a mate, or hide from their enemies"--Front dust jacket flap
Summary
Budding young naturalists (and artists!) will be fascinated by this book, which provides intriguing information about and stunning cut-paper collage illustrations of a wide variety of colorful creatures. Gloriously lifelike images of animals -- from the common yellow wild canary to the exotic green leafy sea dragon or purple long-wattled umbrella bird -- are organized by color, and the easily understood text explains the source, purpose, or message of each animal's hue. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
