Actual Size

Publisher: Frances Lincoln

Have you ever looked a giant squid in the eye, shaken hands with a gorilla or been face to face with a tiger?

This fascinating, ingenious and original book shows young children just what size animals are in relation to themselves and other animals by showing their ‘actual size’. So the eye of the squid, the teeth of the shark and the whole of the Goliath Birdeater Tarantula each fills a page.

The beautiful paper collaged illustrations add texture and intrigue, and each picture includes the exact size and weight of the animals plus there are pictures and further information about each animal at the back of the book.
