From Tyrannosaurus rexto the great white shark, and from the Siberian tiger to South America's ninefoot-tall "Terror Bird," every food chain has its apex predator. Here the Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator of Actual Size, The Beetle Book, and What Do You Do with a Tail Like This?applies his peerless collage skills to the creation of scientifically accurate—and exquisitely beautiful—depictions of meat eaters past and present, including a rhino-sized "killer pig"; the fearsome Komodo dragon; the African wild dog; and Dunkleosteus, an armored prehistoric fish. Steven Jenkins also provides readers 6 to 9 with information on the eating habits and hunting techniques of these animals, imagines what might happen were they to battle, and depicts their size in relation to humans.
