Wiesmüller, Dieter. In the Blink of an Eye. Illustrated by Dieter Wiesmüller. Walker & Company, 2002. ISBN 0802788548. $16.95. 32 pp. Reviewer: Marsha D. Broadway Reading Level: Preschool, Primary Rating: Excellent Genre: non-fiction; Subject: Animals--Juvenile literature; Eye-Juvenile literature; Nature-Juvenile Literature; Whatever your surroundings, you are never alone. Although they may not be seen, animals from owls to lizards to mice share the environment with humans. This book is intended to inspire young people to look more closely at the natural world. On the left side of a double-page spread, Wiesmuller uses tempera paints to illustrate a huge close-up of an eye. The text below each eye describes the action of the creature who is watching the environment; the right side of the spreads pictures humans enjoying the setting. Spectacular illustrations and thoughtful text make this book appealing for the adult reader as well as the child. A key to the "Animals in the Book" will help those who cannot guess the animals' identities.
