LoveReading View on Prehistoric Actual Size

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 Synopsis

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.
