From the Publisher
A simple game of hide-and-seek takes on a new dimension as a growing city encroaches on the jungle the animals call home.

Where's the elephant? Where's the parrot? Where's the snake? And wait a minute -- where are all the trees? Where will the elephant, parrot, and snake go now? A vibrant landscape in flux with three hidden animals on each spread offers parents and children an opportunity to talk about urban development and animal habitats.

Horn Book Guide (Fall 2016)
Bountiful multicolored flora provide beautiful cover for an elephant, a parrot, and a snake in Barroux's eye-catching collage, acrylic, and pencil illustrations. Successive spreads show their habitat yielding to deforestation and man-made buildings until at last the animals are confined to the zoo. While there's sadness in the narrative arc, this simple environmental lesson couched in seek-and-find puzzles ends on a hopeful note.
