Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What is it like to come face-to-face with the ten-foot-tall terror bird? Or stare into the mouth of the largest meat eater ever to walk the earth? Can you imagine a millipede that is more than six feet long, or a dinosaur smaller than a chicken? In this andldquo;actual sizeandrdquo; look at the prehistoric world, which includes two dramatic gatefolds, youandrsquo;ll meet these awe-inspiring creatures, as well as many others.

Synopsis:

As fascinating and informative as ever, this sequel to Jenkinsand#39; equally impressive Actual Size presents prehistoric creatures to lifesize proportions. Itand#39;s hard to imagine a six foot long millipede or a dinosaur even smaller than a chicken, but readers come face to face with these and many more in this outstanding nonfiction offering from a Caldecott Honor winner.
