Jan Ramage, illustrated by Ellen Hickman
From the break of dawn to nightfall, the tuart is not as it appears. Leaves and bark, trunk and branches - all are places of pretence, traps and trickery.
Find out what surprise a "moon crater" might hide and why a bullseye borer drills holes; how a crab spider goes shopping and a jewel beetle becomes a seedpod; why a dragon wears a beard and how a gecko talks. And meet the "mad hatterpiller", who does a very clever hat trick.
'Tuart Dwellers' celebrates the diversity, colour and ingenuity of the natural world.
