Mouselike creatures decked out in brightly colored outfits demonstrate a visual range of relative size, while a rich selection of adjectives spices up the narrative of comparison. “This one is teeny. (Which is short for teeny-weeny.) This one is miniature. This one is minuscule. And this little one is smaller than teeny-weeny, miniature, or minuscule. So small, you might not even notice it. It’s itty-bitty!” Two fold-out pages near the book’s end show the summation of all the different sized creatures end-to-end, creating a poster-sized tower that can only be termed “Colossal!” (Ages 3–6)
