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 this visually stunning book, seeing is believing as Steve Jenkins illustrates animals both large and small at ACTUAL SIZE.

As in his earlier books...Jenkins builds richly textured images from torn and cut paper. Meticulously constructed, they capture details down to the last whisker of a Siberian tiger...Young zoologists will enjoy seeing how they measure up with the creatures on each page.—Jessica Bruder
