A twilight background creates a mysterious world where sight cannot be trusted and creatures appear and disappear at will. The rhythmic words describe a magical microcosm where strange and beautiful creatures cleverly camouflage themselves to become invisible to predators. The Screech Owl squints its eyes to track its prey and together with the reader, seeks out amazing beings hidden among the bark and leaves. Narelle portrays a slice of nature that is often ignored by humans. She uses the silent ad tense world of predators and prey to provide an alluring lesson about nature. At the back of the book is a key to each page that shows where all the creatures are hidden in the illustrations. The book also includes information about the use of camouflage, disguise, and behavioral techniques for survival as well as a bibliography.
