"Discover some of the biggest and smallest things in the natural world, from colossal squids to snowflakes, a life-sized look at nature"
A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month November 2023
Explore the very varied sizes of some of the biggest and the smallest things in the natural world through the many life-size illustrations in this book. These include the tiny box jellyfish and pygmy squid among those on the small side and a massive Siberian tiger claw which gives a sense of the scale of the whole animal. Where a full size illustration is not possible there is useful guidance on how to magnify it up or down.
Matching the illustrations are brief explanatory texts making the whole a good source of easy to understand, bite-size information.
