The Lovereading4Kids comment

From the Atlas Moth that is so big it can be mistaken for a bird to the dwarf goby which is the smallest fish in the world, this is a wonderful introduction to all kinds of creatures each of which is shown life-size either whole or in part in the illustration. The result is a book full of facts some of which are very surprising! The impressive jaws of the salt water crocodile opens out in an alarmingly tooth-filled fold out spread!

Synopsis

Actual Size by Steve Jenkins

Just how big is a crocodile? What about a tiger, or the world's largest spider? Can you imagine a tongue that is two feet long or an eye that is bigger than your head? Sometimes facts and figures don't tell the whole story. In the new edition of this visually stunning book, Steve Jenkins illustrates animals both large and small at their actual size.

Reviews
