The Lovereading4Kids comment
As the title makes clear, this fascinating book illustrates prehistoric creatures at actual size or, where the creature was simply too big to fit on the page, a part of the animal at actual size. On the first spread, the reader comes face to face with a velociraptor, its head spread across the double page, its beady eye drawing the attention. Gatefold pages provide space for an illustration of the bird-like Saltopus in full, and a close up on the huge claw of the fish-eating Baryonyx. One double page provides a dramatic close up on the teeth of the Giganotosaurus. The collage-style illustrations are beautiful in themselves, and this book really has the wow factor. Useful notes at the end contain more information on each of the creatures featured. ~ Andrea Reece

Prehistoric Actual Size by Steve Jenkins
What would it have been like to come face to face with a two-metre-tall terror bird? Or stare into the mouth of the largest meat eater ever to walk the earth? Can you imagine a millipede that is nearly two metres long, or a dinosaur that is smaller than a chicken? In this actual size look at the prehistoric world, which includes two dramatic pull-out pages, you'll meet all these awe-inspiring creatures, and many others too!
A companion title to Actual Size.
A personal favourite of mine - does what it says on the tin! Early Years Educator
