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.
