Skeletons accompanied by helpful clues invite little ones to guess which animals the bones belong to in this sturdy board book. Lift-the-flap pages reveal the mystery animals with colorful illustrations, along with fun facts like this one: “My skull is so big I could eat a pick-up truck. But I don’t.” Can you guess which animal that enormous skull belongs to?

— Drew, Wild Rumpus
