Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
For kids who ask those impossible questions- what animal is the biggest, or smallest, longest or shortest, and so on-Jenkins has created a delightful series of answers using full color cut paper collage illustrations. From the streaking cheetah on the cover to the tiny Etruscan shrew sitting on a teaspoon, readers see the animal and learn salient facts plus a few more delicious tidbits. Cleverly done and sure to appeal to both the littlest and biggest of readers.
