The three-toed sloth is topsy-turvy most of the time. The upside-down jellyfish rests on its back to feed.

Skunks do stink-warning headstands and mallards upend in this colourful, interactive exploration of the hows and whys of upside-down animal behaviour. Striking, texture-rich, cut-paper artwork by the Caldecott Honor artist Steve Jenkins reveals how, for most animals, an occasional flip or dip is a matter of survival! (The fascinating glossary of twenty-six creatures is best read right-side up).

About the Author

Industry Reviews

"Leave it to Jenkins and Page to find another novel take on the animal kingdom using tabs, wheels, and pop-ups, they examine numerous reasons that more than two dozen animals turn themselves upside down or stick their tails in the air." "Publishers Weekly, " starred review "This book will have wide appeal, thanks to the digestible text and the vivid illustrations." "School Library Journal ""The animals are all rendered with typically amazing accuracy from pieces of cut and torn paper. . . . A treat for eye and mind alike, besides being suitable for displays and durable enough to stand up to plend of hands-on use." "Kirkus, " starred review"
