Loving this new-ish look and find.  It’s got a curious color palette with modern sensibilities.  Kids examine groups of items, searching for the “odd one out” and in so doing, work on early inferential and reasoning skills.  Also to be appreciated are the book’s clever subtleties — its grouping of items of very similar shapes and silhouettes (look closely or you might miss the umbrella hiding out with similarly shaped frozen treats) and tongue-in-cheek visual humor (the egg amongst the birds).  Something for everyone—young children and their design-centric parents—in Undercover: One of These Things Is Almost Like the Others by Bastien Contraire.
