Sarah Dennis is an artist whose work combines traditional paper cutting with collage. Her previous book, Animal Camouflage, won the 2016 Junior Design Award for best emerging talent, children's illustrator.
"The focus is on food chains in this follow-up to the dazzling Animal Camouflage. Once again Dennis' precise, realistic cut-paper illustrations command attention. Labeled silhouettes of individual plants and animals are color coded to show their predator/prey relationships within seven marine or terrestrial habitats; these are followed by intricate, full-page monochrome scenes in which the flora and fauna are artfully incorporated to be picked out by the sharp of eye." - Kirkus Reviews
"This is a gorgeous illustrated work featuring facts about animal habitats while combining the enthralling aspect of popular search-and-find books like "I Spy." With facts and clear diagrams of animal food chains, the text and graphics complement each other to give a wonderful overview of the surrounding world, as well as the living creatures in it. A perfect addition to elementary school nonfiction collections." - School Library Journal
