This is a whopper of a book. At 17.8 inches tall and 12.4 inches wide, it’s perfect to open up on a cozy carpet. Each page is classified in a unique way, such as “Underground,” “Black and White,” and “Spots and Stripes.” And for kids (and adults) who enjoy searches, try to find the chameleon on each spread. -- Karina Glaser

This was an awesome book of well drawn, albeit cartoon-ish, animals all broken down into a variety of themes. Science and animals lovers will be sure to be enthralled by this work. It's not quite as instructive as the Life-Size series, although the last pages have a bit of insight about each animal featured. There are *almost no repeats, which was quite a feat given the number of themes covered. A total winner.

Recommend.

This book is simply awesome...so awesome, in fact, that I have to purchase a second one as our first copy has been flipped through, carried around, looked at, studied intensely, displayed for all who enter our home, and loved by two little girls...to death.

This is such a cool book. I happened to see them at savers and bought them on a whim. Oversized books with really amazing illustrations.
