Sami Bayly Book Launch: Creatures of Camouflage and Mimicry


Sami Bayly is releasing a brand new book and East Maitland Library is throwing a book launch party to celebrate!

‘Creatures of Camouflage and Mimicry’ discovers the secrets behind some of the natural world’s most unusual creatures. Find out about the chameleon which changes colour to communicate with its friends, the burrowing owl which copies the sound of a fiercer animal to protect itself from threats, and the harlequin filefish which has come to smell like coral to blend in with its surroundings.

You will be amazed by how these clever creatures use disguise and imitation to find food, send out warning signals, and, most of all, avoid predators!

You are invited to come dressed as your favourite creature of camouflage and enjoy a drawing workshop with Sami Bayly using creatures from her new book, live music all about animals by LizzieLand and try out your own camouflage skills against the very special camouflage wall.

Books will be for sale on the day with an opportunity to get signed.
