Review:

"On the heels of 2009's Life-Size Zoo comes this aquatic companion. As with its large-format predecessor, the crisp, life-size photographs of animals are show-stopping: a turquoise humphead wrasse requires four pages (and still doesn't entirely fit), and unusual species like the leafy sea dragon (akin to a seahorse) and Japanese spider crab join more familiar orcas, dolphins, jellyfish, and penguins. Throughout, cartoon sidebars (both of stick-figure 'visitors' to the aquarium and of the various creatures) provide fascinating bits of information and diversions. Also available: More Life-Size Zoo. Ages 3 — up. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:

Not content to stay on dry land, the Life-Size phenomenon leaves the zoo for a visit to the aquarium. From the clownfish to the killer whale, sea otter to walrus, young readers will see some of their favorite animals from a perspective than they've ever had before. With informative, fun facts accompanying the stellar photographs of each animal, Life-Size Aquarium brings readers eye-to-eye with 19 different animals, including a leafy sea dragon, a luna lionfish, a humphead wrasse, two different varieties of penguins, a sea turtle, a jellyfish, a spider crab, a sea otter, and more. As in previous volumes, three of the animals in this book — a walrus, a killer whale, and a dolphin — spring out of the book in oversized gatefolds.
