Description

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 paperback edition of this visually stunning book, Steve Jenkins illustrates animals both large and small at their actual size.

Review quote

"This book is beautifully produced and is such a useful tool for lessons on size and comparative size...A classic."

"It's beautifully presented; a generously sized book with thick creamy pages which set off the illustrations perfectly."

"Actual size is a strong concept well executed. It's a fun picture book for the very young, a source of knowledge for older readers learning about size and an intriguing read for all."

"Sometimes facts and figures don't tell the whole story, and in this visually exciting book, seeing is believing." "Actual size is a strong concept well executed.
