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 "actual size" look at the prehistoric world, which includes two dramatic gatefolds, you'll meet these awe-inspiring creatures, as well as many others.

"Life-sized depictions of prehistoric animals from the itty-bitty (a protozoan that's no more than a dot) to the colossal (the Giganotosaurus, whose teeth are its only part small enough to be shown) fill the pages of this eye-catching and informative book. Steve Jenkins' dramatic, detailed collage illustrations will be as spellbinding to young prehistory buffs as the additional facts on each creature in the back of the book. Prehistoric Actual Size is great for kids ages five and up." February 2013 Kids' Books
