‘Stripes of All Types’ by Susan Stockdale


“Stripes of All Types” (Peachtree) with vivid illustrations and rhythmic phrases presents 19 animals whose stripes help them hide, communicate, or warn predators of their venom. Writer-illustrator Susan Stockdale uses alliteration and verbs with oomph to highlight a range of animals, from Madagascar’s ring-tailed lemurs to domestic mackerel tabby cats descended from the African wildcat. In the back of this new English-Spanish edition is a matching game and, for older readers, details about how each animal benefits from its stripes.
