Sneaky Shadows

SC Manchild, Sam Caldwell

Sneaky Shadows uniquely showcases the limitless possibilities of shadow-casting in a book of imaginative, absurd misdirection. Its humour, pace and timing will have young audiences on their toes with anticipation, as the bizarre scenarios of author SC Manchild unfold.

Sneaky Shadows is cheeky, laugh-out-loud fun that enjoys repeat reading from children (and parents!) of all ages.


Sneaky Shadows is a very simple premise, on one page the reader is shown a silhouette and asked to guess what it might be. The next page reveals the answer. It starts out quite simple with a silhouette of two penguins (called Dave and Michelle, who are happily married with children and on a night out) but very quickly descends into silliness with a very clear silhouette of a camel turning out to be a llama balancing jelly on her back.

Kids will love trying to guess what the shadows really are and will be delighted when the authors out-silly them every time. This is a great book for kids aged 3+.
