Description

In his latest book, the award-winning author and illustrator Steve Jenkins introduces readers to apex predators - the animals that are at the top of their food chains and have no natural enemies. Using his signature art style, Jenkins illustrates how these animals dominate their different ecosystems using speed, strength, and even cooperation and cunning. Take a trip through history and discover apex predators both past and present, from the earliestsea creatures to the modern African lion and giant freshwater ray, which can grow to over fifteen feet.

Reviews

"Jenkins has done it again--all nonfiction collections will want this title." -SLJ "It's a clear and simple addition to Jenkins' books of animal infographics, and browsers interested in the fiercest of the animal world will snap it quickly up." --Booklist "The intricacy of Jenkins's distinctive artwork will capture readers' imaginations, as will the predator face-offs he stages between pairs of predators. Great white shark vs. Dunkleosteus, anyone?" --Publishers Weekly "It's a clear and simple addition to Jenkins' books of animal infographics, and browsers interested in the fiercest of the animal world will snap it quickly up." --Booklist "The intricacy of Jenkins's distinctive artwork will capture readers' imaginations, as will the predator face-offs he stages between pairs of predators.
