Summary
From the break of dawn to nightfall, the tuart tree 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

Summary
"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 be hiding and why a bullseye borer drills holes; how a crab spider goes shopping and a jewel beetle becomes a seed pod; why a dragon wears a beard and how a gecko talks. And learn about the clever hat trick of a hairy little creature called the 'mad haterpillar'."--Provided by publisher
