A patterned parade of striped animals leaps to life!
What kinds of animals have stripes, and why do they have them? To scare predators, hide more easily, or warn enemies to stay away? Award-winning author-illustrator Susan Stockdale explores nineteen striped animals from around the world, each depicted in their native habitats. Her bright, detailed paintings help show the many reasons stripes are found in nature. Back matter tells a little bit more about each animal, and readers can test their knowledge of animal stripes with a fun matching game at the end.
