While Elephant hides his eyes and counts to ten, Flamingo, Giraffe, Rhino, Tortoise, and Gorilla are among the animals that look for a strategic spot to hide. Elephant quickly finds his friends when he begins to search—all except Chameleon. But observant readers may have already spotted Chameleon hiding on each of the previous pages. Na’s distinctive illustration style, which combines “handmade painterly textures with digitally generated layers” compiled in Adobe Photoshop, is perfectly suited to Chameleon’s masterful camouflage skills. (Ages 2–5)
