Not only do you get the lizards that are illustrated in the book, at the end there are several columns more for your learning experience. To get a book that would have all of them would make it too large for the five and up group, but Lizards at Large: 21 Remarkable Reptiles at Their Actual Size is packed to the gills. Well, lizards do not have gills, but you can learn about what the do have in this book by Roxie Munro.
Now, the publisher description says the illustrations are “true to size illustrations” but I must question the Komodo dragon. Oh, sure it takes up four pages, but since this was an online read, I am not sure how large it actually is! I mean, they are the biggest lizard out there. And while we are given the measurements and all, I cannot see the book be that large. So, when it comes out in late August/early September 2023 I will be finding a copy.
The illustrations are like the cover, though some have a few more details, but not too many more. They are illustrations and not photographs, so some details are missing, while we might be able to distinguish other details easier. This is a scientific book, but not dry. There are facts, but presented so the reader is no overwhelmed or feel smoothed by dusty words (though for the causal science reader, it might be a little weightier than they like).
Lizards at Large can be adapted to most ages, but t he at least five and up is best for the text. I am not sure how the size/shape/format will (or if it will) change that.
