Review:

Tempting though it might be, sidling up to an enchanting zoo animal will always end in trouble. Teruyuki Komiya's More Life -Size Zoo is the next best thing, providing crisp photos of lion faces, gibbon babies, orangutan cheeks and more in their actual dimensions. Children will jump as they open page flaps to discover a glaring, but beautiful, polar bear shown in full furry, fanged detail. Charming cartoons adorn each page, providing facts about the behaviors of each creature. Komiya encourages readers to fine-tune their observation skills too, as he points out features distinguishing the animals from others.
