Actual Size

Steve Jenkins, Author Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) $16 (0p) ISBN 978-0-618-37594-3
Animals in Action A trio of titles explores the animal kingdom. Actual Size by Steve Jenkins is the Caldecott Honor artist's latest foray into the natural world. Here, his signature cut- and torn-paper collage artwork depicts animals to scale, imitating fur and skin remarkably. The title page shows a ""pygmy shrew, 2 inches long"" and readers can view only one 12-inch eye of the giant squid (it can grow up to 59 feet long); the man-eating saltwater crocodile requires a three-page foldout to depict its toothy countenance.
