US Kirkus Review » In this visual feast from Lesser and Regan (Dig Hole, Soft Mole, 1996), so striking are the oil and gouache wildlife portraits that, despite the counting book framework, numbers are nearly an afterthought. Every spread has a you-are-there quality, as if readers are peering into a rock-strewn stream to spy six fire salamanders or scuba diving alongside one leopard ray in the murky blue. The book opens with an invitation - "Spotted creatures/wait for you. Snoop and find them/count them, too" - as Lesser toys with language, using active verbs to describe the kinds of spots found on each animal: "Staring, rippling, jetting spots" dapple five reef squid; "loping, gazing, nibbling spots" grace seven reticulated giraffes. Although spots are the unifying theme, the creatures have been carefully selected not only for their markings but for their habitats or biomes, identified and outlined in a final glossary.
