What in the Wild? (Hardcover)
From the creative team that brought us "Where in the Wild? and Where ELSE in the Wild? c"ome 10 new mysteries of the natural world for readers to solve. Kid-pleasing riddles paired with mystifying images give clues to guess: What creature made that pile of twigs, mass of leaves, frothy spittle, and so on...And why? As with the other books, answers are found by opening a generous gatefold and revealing full-color photographs.

Review, Kirkus Reviews, July 1, 2010:
"This third in the series of highly acclaimed books that began with Where in the Wild? offers a clever twist on the original idea."
Review, School Library Journal, September, 2010:
"...This tidy package from a talented trio will delight children (and teachers of whole curriculum, too)."
Review, Booklist, September 15, 2010:
"The clever verse, curious photos, and guessing-game element will engage children, while the clear explanations and photos of details will enlighten them."
Review, The Children's Book Review, November 15, 2010:
"An engaging and mind-tingling book for young readers."
Review, The 4:00 Book Hook, December 2010/January 2011 issue:
"... one could teach an entire year (at least) of math and science using the books that David M. Schwartz has had a hand in making, and WHAT IN THE WILD? Surely validates that idea. It’s a picture book but budding scientists or poets of all ages will find it fascinating."
