Actual Size

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.

Our Review Panel says...

We know that certain animals are large or small, but how big exactly? Each page shows the actual size of an animal. Some easily fit on the page, others only manage an eye or a hand. A much-enjoyed book that leaves children in awe at the actual size of some animals, as it’s not often that we come face to face with the biggest beasts on earth! A high-interest link to topics of measurement or ratio.
