Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Did you know that a tornado travels faster than a race car? Or that a human and spider travel at the same speed? Full Speed Ahead! is the first picture book to directly compare the speeds of animals, modes of transport, and forces of nature in a clear and visually striking album format. Objects are grouped from slowest to fastest, with objects of the same speed on one spread, creating fascinating andldquo;matchandrdquo; races. And with a sleek, graphic design and vibrant spot-color printing, Full Speed Ahead! is as gorgeous to look at as it is informative to read. On your mark, get set, go!

Praise for Full Speed Ahead

andquot;The information will intrigue curious minds.andquot;

Synopsis:

How big is a crocodile? What about a tiger, or the worldand#8217;s largest spider? Can you imagine a tongue that is two feet long or an eye thatand#8217;s bigger than your head? Sometimes facts and figures donand#8217;t tell the whole story. Sometimes you need to see things for yourselfand#151;at their actual size.

Synopsis:

Climb the tallest mountain, dive into the deepest lake, and navigate the longest river in Steve Jenkins' stunning new book that explores the wonders of the natural world. With his striking cut paper collages, Jenkins majestically captures the grand sense of scale, perspective and awe that only mother earth can inspire.

Sometimes facts and figures donand#8217;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.
