Big Bug

Big Bug
by Henry Cole
Little Simon 2014

A delightful concept book on visual perspectives.  The story begins with an up close view of a ladybug, then zooms out to little bug on a big leaf.  It then zooms out to a small leaf near a big flower, and so on.  We compare perspectives on houses, barns, and trees, until we end with an illustration of a sleeping, big dog.  Brilliant story arc and wonderfully rendered illustrations will teach perspectives; it will particularly delight young artists and engineers.  A book worth seeking out.
