Spreads include: “Gorgeous Glow, “Super Shells,” “Spectacularly Spotted,” “Funny Faces, ”Amazing Arms,” “Stylish Stripes,” “Fantastic Fins,” “Terrific Teeth,” “Bold Black & White,” “Snazzy Spikes,” and Enormous Eyes.”
It may sound like that isn’t a lot of pages, but each spread is so full of things to look at that it seems jam-packed. The pages (or more accurately, boards) are saturated with bright colors with nary a white space to be found.
