Description of this Book

What does it take to be the top dog ? 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 earliest sea creatures to the modern African lion and giant freshwater ray, which can grow to over fifteen feet.
