I just cannot resist books about animals! And this one just looked so much fun and I was curious to see what kind of big animals we would meet. Would we go up in height? Or in length? Or something else like weight?
It is a combination of everything! Plus more! Because an animal can be big in many ways. Most of the animals are big and large, but they also have other parts that are big/large/huge. Like the elephant with huge tusks, or the giraffe with very tall legs. I loved that it was a combination of things.
I loved the variety in the animals. From giraffes to whales to colossal squids! I loved that we didn’t just get land animals, but got sea animals as well. I do think I would have loved some flying animals as well! I know there are some very big birds flying around the world.
Each animal gets 6 pages. The first two is a beautiful big illustration of the animal along with an introduction and the other 4 pages are about the animal. About what it eats, what it does when in danger, and a lot more fun information. I knew a lot of details already but still I learned some very fun new facts!
The illustrations are just gorgeous, the details are fantastic and it looks like the animals will just pop out of the pages for a cup of tea (or a leaf or two).
Definitely would recommend this fun and beautiful book to all animal lovers!
